NEW YORK (PIX11) – The 28-year-old accused of shooting a rookie NYPD officer is under arrest, and off-duty FDNY EMTs were honored Thursday for jumping in to help the wounded policeman.
Rashun Robinson of Brooklyn has been charged with two counts of attempted first degree murder, among a list of other charges, for allegedly shooting Officer James Li in Crown Heights on Wednesday.
Officer Li was helped immediately after his shooting by two off duty Fire Department EMTs, Kadijah Hall and Shaun Alexander.
The two women were honored in a ceremony Thursday morning.
“I don’t consider myself a hero you know, we do this everyday,” Alexander said.
