Another 9mm Gold Dot 124+P (one shot, one stop)

Discussion in 'Caliber Corner' started by Brooklyn123456, Feb 3, 2012.

  1. The incident began around 3 p.m. Thursday when a six-officer street narcotics team observed Graham and two cohorts make a drug deal at a bodega on East 228th Street.

    Some members of the team radioed that they believed Graham was carrying a gun – and later radioed that they saw the butt of a gun in his waistband, Kelly said.

    Graham ran with the others into a building at 728 East 229th Street. Then, when he came out, a witness said she heard two cops say “Stop! Police!”

    Graham then ran into 749 East 229th St., where he lived with his family in a second floor apartment.

    As three of the cops burst into that apartment, they saw Graham run from a bedroom to a bathroom.

    According to Kelly’s account, as Graham tried to flush drugs down the toilet, one of the officers yelled: “Show me your hands! Show me your hands! Gun! Gun!”

    That officer then fired at Graham with his service weapon, a 9mm Glock. The bullet struck Graham in the left clavicle. He was declared dead later at Montefiore Hospital.

    How do you know the bullet was a 124-grain Gold Dot +P?

    It tickled his innards?

    He thought it was a .45?

    That's the standard load for NYPD. If it were another department it could be something else.

    Probably hit an artery? Or deflected into his heart?

    I know the Speer 124-grain Gold Dot +P is the issue ammo for uniformed officers but is it the same issue ammo for undercover NYPD or do those officers have some discretion in weapons/ammo?

    As the details read, it was a street narcotics unit, so it would be the official duty load that was used. These are the units going around observing hand to hands not the ones undercovers using a different alias. But, you are correct. U/C's have some discretion in the "funny guns" they are allowed to have. Since perps know what the police carry, it makes since to have U/C's carry guns that would be more likely found being carried in the street by the typical hood.
