An assassinated off-duty 25-year-old female corrections officer has been identified as NYC DOC Officer Alastasia Bryan. Officer Bryan’s killer is still on the loose.

Sunday, December 4th 2016, approximately 2115, NYC DOC Officer Alastasia Bryan sitting in her car by Avenue L and E. 73rd Street, when a dark colored Honda pulled up next to her and opened fire into her vehicle, fatally shooting her in her head as well as her torso.

The corrections officer was off-duty at the time but it’s not clear what, if any, connection there was to her job. It’s unknown if she was in uniform at the time of the shooting or if a previously incarcerated suspect recognized her.

It’s unclear if she was intentionally targeted or if the shooting was random, but police said Monday morning that detectives had obtained surveillance video showing a man getting out of a vehicle and walking up to Bryan’s car. The video shows the man opening fire and then getting back into his vehicle before taking off, police said.

Elias Husamudeen with the Corrections Officers’ Benevolent Association issued the following statement:

“Tonight our correction family and the entire City of New York is shocked and grieving the horrific murder of one of the youngest members of New York City’s Boldest, who was shot and killed by an unknown assailant while sitting in her car in Brooklyn. There are no words that can express the depth of this tragedy. The COBA will do everything we can to support the officer’s family during this time and we will not rest until the assailant or assailants are brought to justice.”

This is the 2nd attack on NYC DOC officer’s in the past 7 days, on November 27th, two armed gunmen stormed a house in their Queen’s home, NBC reports.

The men stormed into the Mathias Avenue home sometime before 7 p.m. and once inside shot 58-year-old Henry Wright multiple times in his torso and a 52-year-old woman in her shoulder, according to police.

Wright was unconscious when paramedics rushed him to Jamaica Hospital in critical condition. The woman was also taken to Jamaica Hospital in serious condition, police said.

It’s unclear what the motive for the home invasion was or if anything was stolen from the home. A spokesman for the state Department of Corrections said Wright was a 35-year veteran assigned to the Queensboro Correctional Facility in Queens.

The two suspects, said to be in their 20s, escaped. Police were looking for them Sunday night. Authorities said they were wearing black hoodies and jeans.

The police have not issued any statements linking the two separate attacks on the corrections officers.

Rest In Peace…

God Bless.
