The ex-con accused of fatally gunning down NYPD cop Brian Moore in 2015 bawled like a baby in the back of a squad car after his arrest, an officer testified Tuesday.
“He was crying,” NYPD Detective Colin Sparks said in Queens court as accused cop-killer Demetrius Blackwell looked on blankly.
Blackwell shot Moore through the head after the 25-year-old cop and his partner responded to a call of a man throwing cinderblocks through a window in May 2015, prosecutors say.
Moore and his partner, Erik Jensen, had been on patrol in Queens Village when they spotted Blackwell in the vicinity adjusting his waistband. The pair pulled up behind him, and asked, “You got something?”
“Yeah, I got something,” Blackwell spat before pulling out a gun and firing three times, according to trial testimony.
Jensen later identified Blackwell in a line-up.
If convicted on charges of first-degree murder, Blackwell faces up to life behind bars.
