A “coward” ex-con was taken into custody Sunday in New York City after two police officers were shot less than 12 hours apart in ambushes described as assassination attempts by the mayor and police commissioner.

Lt. Jose Gautreaux was in stable condition after being wounded Sunday morning in shooting caught on video at a Bronx precinct headquarters, Police Commissioner Dermot Shea said. Shea said a man taken into custody at the scene was also suspected in the previous attack on officers in a police van a few blocks away. 

Mayor Bill de Blasio, speaking at a news conference Sunday, said Gautreaux was in stable condition. The officer shot Saturday night, Paul Stroffolino, was released from Lincoln Hospital Sunday as a phalanx of officers saluted and cheered.

“Thank God our officers are alive,” de Blasio said. “This was an attempt to assassinate police officers, we need to use the word. It was a premeditated effort to kill.
