Officer Jason Rivera, 22, was also shot Friday night while answering a call about an argument between a woman and her adult son.

Suspect LaShawn McNeil, 47, is in critical condition after being shot by a third NYPD officer during a home disturbance call inside his mother’s Harlem apartment Friday.

McNeil died of his injuries after being shot in the right hand and head by a third officer, Sumit Sulan.

The suspect’s mother and another son were in the living room while McNeil was in the back bedroom and were not seen.

When Rivera and Mora approached the bedroom, McNeil allegedly opened fire, assaulting both officers.

As the suspect left the bedroom and tried to get out of the apartment, he encountered Sulan, who shot McNeil twice.

Investigators recovered a Glock.45 pistol equipped with a high-capacity magazine that holds up to 40 extra rounds.

Police believe the gun was purchased illegally in Baltimore and are still trying to determine the source of the high-capacity magazine.

Mora suffered a serious head injury, police said.

The medical examiner ruled Rivera’s death a homicide on Saturday after an autopsy found he died of gunshot wounds to the head and torso.

On Friday, NYPD Chief Detective James Essig said the alleged gunman is on probation for 2003 drug offenses in New York City, as well as having served previous arrests. that’s outside of the Big Apple.

In 1998, he was arrested in South Carolina for illegal possession of a firearm, although this was later denied.

McNeil was later arrested for assaulting a police officer in Pennsylvania in 2002.

The following year, he was arrested twice in Pennsylvania, once on drug and misdemeanor charges.

NYPD HORROR

The Harlem shooting comes just a day after an NYPD detective was shot and injured during a drug bust on Staten Island.

Dominick Libretti, the injured detective, likely suffered a “career-ending injury” when a suspect fired “multiple shots” through a bedroom door, according to reports.

On Tuesday, officer Kaseem Pennant was shot in the leg by a teenage suspect in The Bronx.

On New Year’s Day, officer Keith Wagenhauser was hit by shrapnel as he sat in his car outside East Harlem police station after his shift.

He is expected to make a full recovery.

The last NYPD member to be killed on the job was Anastasios Tsakos, 43, who was hit by an alleged drunk driver on a Long Island highway last April.
