Man escapes back of NYPD car before being tackled by police after shooting

UPPER WEST SIDE, Manhattan — A beef between two parties Monday afternoon near the Amsterdam Houses on Manhattan’s West Side spilled over on to the street.

According to police, at least three people were taken into custody for getting in the way of the investigation of a 27-year-old man who was shot on the Upper West Side Monday.

One of the three who were taken into custody managed to climb out of the back window of the car. The officers immediately converged and piled on to the man. PIX11 cameras were rolling during the altercation.

Police said this man was not a suspect in the shooting, and that the search was ongoing at the scene.

An FDNY spokesperson said they got the call for a person shot at around 4:23 p.m., with one person transported to a local hospital in serious condition.
