NYPD: Woman charged in pellet gun shooting of cop


An NYPD detective was shot in the head with a pellet gun on Wednesday evening in the Jamaica area of Queens, police said, but he was expected to be OK.

Tiara Ferebee, 24, was arrested and charged with attempted murder of a police officer on Saturday in connection with the incident, the NYPD said. 

The detective was driving an unmarked vehicle up Jamaica Avenue in Queens, near 168th Street, when he was struck in the forehead about 5:10 p.m, cops said.

A passenger in a car driving in the opposite direction fired the shot, police said. Ferebee's arrest came after police released a surveillance photo of the passenger. 

The detective, who was with a sergeant at the time, was taken to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center with non life-threatening injuries.
