An officer with the New York Police Department died Tuesday after being shot while chasing a gunman in East Harlem, authorities said.

Officer Randolph Holder and his partner were responding to reports of a man with a gun near 120th Street and FDR Drive when the shooting occurred, according to the NYPD’s Twitter account.

The 33-year-old officer later died at hospital in Harlem.

The suspected gunman, who was also wounded in the shootout, was arrested four blocks away, the Twitter account stated.

Holder, an immigrant from Guyana, was the fourth officer killed in New York City in the past 11 months, Police Commissioner William J. Bratton said at a news conference Tuesday night.
