Retired NYPD cop shot during standoff with Long Island police

A retired NYPD officer was shot during a standoff with police on Long Island, cops said Thursday.

The incident unfolded just before 2:20 p.m. Wednesday when Christopher Malerba allegedly threatened to shoot cops after they responded to a 911 call for a man making homicidal and suicidal statements, police said.

The 49-year-old Malerba barricaded himself in his Bailey Road home — at one point coming out and pointing his rifle at officers, who shot him, according to police.

Malerba, who was shot in the hand, ran back into his house, cops said.
