Albany cop hurt, suspect killed as traffic stop leads to shooting

ALBANY, N.Y. -- Albany police say Officers Kevin Moynihan and Christopher Pageau acted appropriately when one of them opened fire on 37-year old Howard Tucker.

They say Tucker had tried to run them down during a traffic stop at Quail and Spring Streets in the city Tuesday night.

According to preliminary reports, in an attempt to get away, Tucker drove over Officer Moynihan, dragging and pinning him against a fence.

At that point, police say at least one of the officers shot Tucker, who was still behind the wheel. Tucker was pronounced dead at Albany Medical Center.

Moynahan was treated for injuries to his lower body and released.

During a search of Tucker's car, police found a cocked and loaded .45 caliber handgun.

NEWS10 has learned this wasn't the first time Tucker had been in trouble with the law. Albany police say Tucker had been arrested by them a number of times before being pulled over on Tuesday.

Tucker, who is originally from Manhattan, is a parolee who has served time for drug possession. He was released last march.

Sources also tell NEWS10 that Tucker's car matched the description of a vehicle spotted at the scene of a shooting on Monday night.

A woman was shot in the face during that incident.
