NYPD call logs paint a harrowing picture of the final moments of a rookie 22-year-old cop shot dead while responding to a domestic violence callout in Harlem Friday night.
Lashawn J. McNeil, 47, shot rookie officer Officer Jason Rivera and Officer Wilbert Mora, 27, with his .45 Glock on Friday before an unnamed third officer could non-fatally shoot him in the head and arm.
The shooter survived, with the all-caps entry of SHOTS FIRED on the written log providing a harrowing testament of what had just unfolded.

Audio of a subsequent 911 call provides further insight into the chaos that unfolded.
But the 911 call placed by McNeil’s mother Shirley Sourzes at 5:09 pm, summoning police to the Harlem apartment where they lived together, gave no indication that the officers would be walking into the deadly situation.
‘HE IS THREATENING TO DO THINGS TO HER,’ read’s the call center’s log entry. ‘HE IS IN THE HOUSE NOW.’
But Sourzes told the dispatcher that no one in the 119 West 135th Street apartment was armed or injured, with the call log reading: ‘FEM HAVING DISPUTE WITH HER SON — NO WPNS —- NO INJS.’
There were no further entries in the dispatch log for over an hour – until, at 6.21 pm, ‘SHOTS FIRED’ was entered.

When Rivera, Mora and the third officer arrived at the McNeil house, the mother was in a front room with another son.
She said that her threatening son was in the back room, and so Rivera and Mora approached the room along a narrow 30-foot hallway.
The third officer remained with the mother and her other son.

Officials in New York City say at least one police officer has died and another officer is currently in critical condition after a shooting in Harlem.
Police say the officers were responding to a domestic violence call.
When Rivera and Mora got close, McNeil opened fire with a Glock 45 equipped with a high capacity 40 round magazine, shooting both officers.
He made a dash for the door, but was shot by the third officer in the right arm and head.
At 6:22pm, three requests to ‘rush the bus’ – police jargon for an ambulance – were placed within 10 seconds. The ambulance got on the road 21 seconds later.
Then, the next entry at 6:24 pm reads: ‘Level 1 mobilization [at the Harlem apartment] in regards to 3 MOS (members of service) shot.’
But dispatchers quickly advised that only two officers had actually been shot, correcting themselves four seconds later.
Minutes later, at 6:28 pm, the officers had arrived at Harlem Hospital.
