NYPD orders officers to turn in their bullets in ammunition recall
January 7, 2023
The NYPD issued a department-wide recall of its 9 mm ammunition (SPEER Gold Dot 9 mm 124-gr. +P) this week after it was discovered that a bad batch of bullets was failing to fire properly, the Daily News has learned.
The recall was issued on Jan. 5 and all officers who received 9 mm ammo from the department between Dec. 19 and Wednesday were ordered to report to the outdoor range on Rodman’s Neck and return them for a new cache of bullets..
20 Gunshot Victims Wounded By Their Defective SIG SAUER P320 Pistols, File An Unprecidented Lawsuit Against The Gunmaker
People have been injured by accidental fires from SIG Sauer guns, and they’re people who know how to use them properly—police officers and Army veterans. But when the gun is defective, even the most skilled user can have an accident.
Florida officer’s SIG Sauer lawsuit
Bob Northrop is a decorated veteran and was a Tampa, Florida police officer for 30 years. After returning, he was a reserve officer for 19 years. He was about to become the longest-serving officer for the city of Tampa.
But then his career came to an abrupt halt on February 27, 2020.
Northrop was working an extra-duty job at a high school, patrolling school sporting events. He was walking the ball fields at Jefferson High School and began to attach a set of keys to his service belt. When his hand brushed his holster to attach the keys, his SIG Sauer P320 pistol fired by itself. There were dozens of students just feet away.
The bullet blew apart the bones in his leg and ankle and he required surgery, screws, rods and lengthy rehabilitation. Northrop remained in the hospital for weeks after the accidental shooting.

A U.S. Postal Service carrier who was attacked by five dogs in Putnam County, Florida, has died, a sheriff’s official said.
Pamela Jane Rock, 61, died at a hospital Monday night, the day after the vicious attack, which a neighbor tried to stop by firing into the air, sheriff’s Col. Joseph Wells said Tuesday at a news conference.
“One neighbor brought his firearm along and fired several shots in the air in an attempt to disrupt the attack,” Wells said. “That was unsuccessful.“
Officers applied tourniquets to stem the loss of blood, but during the drive to the hospital, Rock went into cardiac arrest.
Neighbors and the dogs’ owner pulled the animals off Rock after they heard her scream, he said. The animals were seized and will be euthanized. Additional details about the dogs, including size or breed, were not provided.
Rock’s niece told NBC affiliate WTLV of Jacksonville that Rock had recently completed training with the Postal Service and was in a postal vehicle when it broke down Sunday in a neighborhood about 65 miles south of Jacksonville.
She said that her aunt was horrifically wounded and that doctors amputated an arm in their attempt to save her.
Animal control officials had visited the dogs’ home at least twice in the last three years, Wells said.

ST. CHARLES, Mo. (KMOV/Gray News) – Police in Missouri are investigating a violent crime spree in St. Charles that ended with an armed robber being shot and killed.
The St. Charles Police Department reports the crime spree started during the early morning hours on Saturday at a convenience store where a 26-year-old went into the business with a knife and told the clerk he was robbing her.
Police said the man held the knife to the clerk’s throat while she opened the register. He then pushed the clerk to the floor and stole money from the register. He dragged her toward the back of the store, asking the location of the safe.
According to authorities, the clerk did not have access to the safe, so the thief forced the worker to open a second register before stealing that cash and leaving the scene.
Officials said first responders took the clerk to a hospital for lacerations on her left wrist, right hand and neck.
Police said they were on their way to that scene when reports of another armed robbery came in at a Phillips 66 gas station. Officers said they found broken glass that looked like a burglary had occurred.
St. Charles police said a third burglary call then came in regarding an armed robbery at a QuikTrip convenience store where shots had been fired.
According to police, arriving officers found the 26-year-old suspect shot by a customer during that attempted robbery. First responders took the suspected thief to the hospital, where he later died.
Authorities said they interviewed the customer, a 26-year-old man, who told police he stopped at the gas station to use the restroom and buy something. However, he was walking back to his car from the store when he saw a black SUV drive quickly into the parking lot.
The customer said he saw a man carrying a backpack while running into the store and threatening the clerk with a knife, according to police.
Officials said the 26-year-old customer grabbed his gun and went back into the store. He then confronted the thief, who grabbed for his backpack.
According to authorities, the suspect reportedly told the customer, “I have something for you,” and came around the counter when he was shot and killed by the customer.
Investigators said the customer and the clerk were both uninjured in the incident and the suspect’s car came back as stolen in an armed robbery on Friday, with stolen items also found in the vehicle.
