Two New York Police officers are being credited with catching a Florida murder suspect on the run.
Thirty-two-year-old Nicholas Gibson is suspected in the murder of 77-year-old Erik Stocker in Miami Beach.
Police in Florida had notified the NYPD that Gibson was headed to New York City and Sgt. Roger Coleman and Officer Estefany Rosario recognized him as he exited a subway train on Sunday.
Sergeant Coleman was initially alone and decided to move in by himself.
“I had looked at the flier on the phone maybe 15 minutes before, and there he is. He steps off the last car on the l train coming from Brooklyn. He walked right to me and then I see Officer Rosario, and she kinda knew right away.”
Gibson put up a fight before he was taken into custody. As a result, Officer Rosario is recovering from torn ligaments in her hand.
Also, authorities believe Gibson could be a serial killer.
After being taken into custody, they say he confessed to being involved in six additional murders in Florida, Georgia and California.
