NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Both U.S. marshals injured in a shootout with a fugitive have been released from the hospital as new details emerged Tuesday about what led authorities to find the suspected sexual predator at a West Village smoke shop.
An NYPD detective wounded in the shooting remained hospitalized late Tuesday.
On Tuesday morning, a group of officers left Bellevue Hospital Center, where an NYPD detective who was shot in the groin continues to recover.
The fugitive, 32-year-old Charles Mozdir, was killed when gunfire erupted Monday afternoon at Smoking Culture on West 4th Street.
Mozdir was being sought for allegedly molesting the 7-year-old son of close friends in California in 2012, authorities said.
A $1 million bench warrant was issued for his arrest in June 2012 after he skipped an arraignment in San Diego on child sexual assault charges, a spokesman for the San Diego County district attorney said.
