The convicted gunman and career criminal charged with shooting two NYPD officers, killing one, has died of his injuries.

Lashwn McNeil, 47, has been in critical condition since he was shot by a third “hero” cop after he ambushed the two officers when his mother called 911 last Friday and pleaded for help at her Harlem apartment.

Newlywed cop Jason Rivera, 22, was killed and his partner, Wilbert Mora, 27, was seriously injured in the ambush.

NYPD call logs painted a poignant picture of the last moments of the novice cop who was shot dead while responding to a report of domestic violence in Harlem that night.

When Rivera, Mora, and the third officer arrived at the McNeil house, the mother was in an anteroom with another son. She said her menacing son was in the back room, and Rivera and Mora approached the room through a narrow 10-foot-high corridor.

The third officer stayed with the mother and her other son.

As Rivera and Mora got close, McNeil opened fire with a Glock 45 equipped with a high-capacity 40 rounds magazine, shooting both officers.

He ran for the door, but was shot in the right arm and head by the third officer.

At 6:22 p.m., three requests to ‘rush the bus’ – police slang for an ambulance – were posted within 10 seconds. The ambulance arrived on the road 21 seconds later.

Then the next entry is at 6.24 pm: ‘Level 1 mobilization’ [at the Harlem apartment] related to 3 MOS (service members).’ But dispatchers were quick to report that only two officers had been shot and corrected themselves four seconds later.

Minutes later, at 6:28 p.m., the officers had arrived at Harlem Hospital.
