A female New York City correction officer was fatally shot in her car over the weekend while off-duty in Brooklyn.
25-year-old Alastasia Bryan was sitting in her car in Brooklyn around 9:15PM when somebody came up to her vehicle and fired several shots into her head and torso.
Police report that she died on the scene and can not confirm whether she was intentionally or randomly targeted. However, authorities reported on Monday that detectives had obtained CCTV footage showing a man getting out of a vehicle and walking up to Bryan’s car before opening fire and leaving.
Bryan’s car was surrounded by investigators and bystanders on Sunday night, with several people seen crying and hugging.
The Correction Officers Benevolent Association (COBA) union confirmed Bryan’s occupation in a Facebook post early Monday morning.
“Tonight our correction family and the entire City of New York is shocked and grieving the horrific murder of one of the youngest members of New York City’s Boldest, who was shot and killed by an unknown assailant while sitting in her car in Brooklyn,” COBA President Elias Husamudeen wrote.
Bryan’s exact facility is unknown and a police investigation is ongoing but has yet to turn up any suspects.
Another corrections officer (and his wife) was shot the weekend prior in Queens, with both being taken to the hospital in critical and serious conditions, respectively.
