The man who shot and injured an NYPD officer on Thursday wrote a swastika on a bedroom wall before killing himself during a standoff with police, law enforcement sources say. Andy Sookedo, 29, wrote the swastika on the wall along with the words, "I die with a joyful heart," the sources said. Sookedo was found dead with a self-inflicted gunshot wound when police entered the home Thursday evening, according to police.
The 30-year-old NYPD officer who was shot during an hours-long standoff that ended when the gunman killed himself Thursday is expected to be released from the hospital later Friday. Hart Nguyen was shot several times when he responded to a call about a 29-year-old emotionally disturbed man on Ridgewood Avenue in Cypress Hills, police said. Officials said Nguyen's bulletproof vest kept him from suffering injuries that could have killed him.
A medical escort was killed when the ambulette she used to transport disabled people rolled on top of her after it was struck by a hit-and-run driver in the Bronx, police said. Irene Espinal, 37, was pinned by the ambulette after the hit-and-run driver hit it on 229th Street on Wednesday morning, according to police. Espinal had been unloading a disabled man at the time and somehow became trapped underneath the ambulette after it was pushed on top of her, police said.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
