NYPD Cop Shot in Head

New York City officers have arrested the man who shot an NYPD officer in the base of his skull outside a Brooklyn housing project Tuesday night. Police Commisser Ray Kelly said Luis "Baby" Ortiz, 21, was taken into custody shortly after 11:30 P.M. Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said officers saw three people running after the shooting and recognized Ortiz from previous arrests. He was wanted for an investigation into a homicide that took place on New Year's Day. Mayor Michael Bloomberg said the wounded officer is currently in "critical but stable condition" in Bellevue Hospital.
