A 36-year-old Sheepshead Bay man was sentenced to 110 years to life in prison following his conviction on two counts of aggravated assault upon a police officer, and other charges last month. Nakwon Foxworth of Nostrand Avenue was deemed a persistent violent felony offender after wounding three NYPD Emergency Service Unit cops during an April, 2012 shootout.

According to trial testimony, on April 8, 2012, Foxworth pulled a gun on movers in his building following a verbal dispute over items left in the hallway, after which he returned to the apartment he shared with his girlfriend and their 10-month-old son.

Approximately one hour after police arrived on the scene, the defendant opened fire on the five responding officers, injuring three of them. The officers returned fire and struck Foxworth, after which the unit was able to recover three guns from his apartment.

“This convicted felon could have killed those five brave police officers who literally risked their lives to save a woman and her 10-month-old child,” said District Attorney Ken Thompson. “He’s not fit to remain in our society and deserves the sentence that he got today.”
