It comes as Robert Williams, 45, was charged Monday for attempted murder and other allegations after a weekend of terror launched at the police.
The shootings have led to reproaches from police officers and trade union leaders who criticized recent demonstrations such as creating an “anti-police” atmosphere and a reduction in the characterization of police reform advocates who said that making that connection was irresponsible.
Williams, of the Bronx, is accused of approaching a police patrol car on Saturday night and shoots at two officers, injures one before escaping on foot, and also of opening the fire on Sunday morning at the 41st headquarters, where he is a lieutenant police injured before being arrested.
Under the watchful eyes of the police officers who grabbed a Bronx courtroom, Williams appeared his first appearance after his arrest on Sunday, wearing a gray sweatshirt and sweatpants, one eye swollen shut and a bandage on his ear.
Just before Williams was charged, it was revealed that he was arrested in 2018 for driving under the influence. At the time of that arrest, Williams tried to resist, and asked officers to use a stun gun on him.

After his arrest, he was admitted to hospital and from his hospital bed Williams would have made several crawling statements. According to News 4, Williams expressed his anger about the police in general before mentioning the DWI arrest.
Allegedly, Williams expressed anger about bewilderment and labeled an emotionally disturbed person by the officers who arrested him at the time.
After the 2018 arrest, Williams returned to prison for a two-month conditional violation from December 2018 to January 2019.
During his detention, Williams reportedly told hospital officers that he would shoot one of them as soon as he was released.
“I’m going to shoot at one of you when I get out,” Williams said according to the New York Post.
After the trial, Patrick Lynch (on the photo) condemned the president of the Benevolent Patrol Association in New York City the shooting out of court
Williams was taken into custody again after his appearance on Monday and must return to court on February 14.
He was represented in court by a lawyer from The Bronx Defenders.
“There is much that we don’t know about what happened and what led to this incident,” said lawyer Tom Klein in a statement.
“We look forward to doing research and learning more so that we can best represent Mr. Williams.”
Earlier Monday, Lieutenant Jose Gautreaux, who had been wounded in the 41st district, was greeted by rows of officers waiting when he left the hospital.
With his arm in a sling and a police jacket over his shoulders, Gautreaux stepped out of a wheelchair at the entrance to the hospital, walked to a waiting car, and gave the crowd a thumbs up. Among those there was NYPD Commissioner Shea.
The officer who was wounded in that earlier attack, Paul Stroffolino, was released from the hospital on Sunday evening.

Police said Williams had a long criminal history, including a 2002 shooting and carjacking in which he fired a gun at the police. He was released from prison in 2017.
Shea has spoken out in condemning activists for criminal justice reform to carry out protests that he suggested were part of what he called an anti-police environment.
‘These things are not separate from each other. People recently marched through the streets of New York City, “Shea said Sunday. “Words matter. And words influence people’s behavior. “
