Det. Peter Figoski
Prosecutors said Pride and four others plotted to rob a drug dealer who lived in a basement apartment in Brooklyn, but were interrupted by police.
Lamont Pride is accused of murder in the December 2011 death of Officer Peter Figoski.
During his closing argument, prosecutor Ken Taub said while the defendant’s intent may have been to get away from a bungled robbery, he was also intent on killing any police officer who got in his way.
Four detectives who were involved in the manhunt for Det. Peter Figoski’s killers testified in the murder trial of Lamont Pride on Monday.
Defendant Lamont Pride said that he was trying to escape a robbery when he was confronted by a hooded man with a gun in his hand. He said that after a struggle, a shot went off.
