Zombie Woman In NYC Goes At Cops With A Knife, Gets Shot, Keeps Walking Forward
Queens Village, New York State — The NYPD is released body-worn camera footage from an officer-involved shooting that occurred on May 24, 2019 in the confines of the 105th Precinct.
At approximately 10 pm, two uniformed police officers assigned to the 105th Precinct were in a marked police vehicle traveling westbound on Jamaica Avenue and approaching 212 Street when they observed a female standing in front of a carwash acting erratically.
The officers turned left onto 212 Street and entered the carwash driveway when the female, 49-year-old Lydia Spicer, threw a glass bottle at the officers as they were exiting the vehicle. The officers exited their vehicle and observed Spicer with a knife in her hand.
Both officers repeatedly ordered Spicer to drop the knife, at which time she advanced towards them with the knife still in her hand.
One of the officers fired one round striking Spicer in the lower abdomen before she fled the scene. Two additional uniformed officers assigned to the 105th Precinct responded to the location and observed Spicer approximately one block from the incident location.
The officers approached Spicer and observed her to still be in possession of the knife. One of the officers successfully deployed their Taser, striking Spicer while the other officer was able to place her into custody.
EMS responded to the location and transported Spicer to an area hospital where she was treated for her gunshot wound and released into police custody.
She was charged with two counts of attempted assault, two counts of attempted aggravated assault on a police officer, two counts of menacing a police officer and one count of criminal possession of a weapon.
