Receiving a call of shots fired, and a woman waving her gun around at 2:20 pm on August 15th, officers responded in full force. Especially as she began waiving it at them. Walking around the area of Jerusalem Avenue and Bellmore Avenue in North Bellmore, the film shows her pointing the gun at her head, only to be body checked and sent to the ground by a passing deputy.

Once on the ground, officers moved in and took the suspect into custody. When speaking with the officers, the woman identified herself by her alias, 33-year-old Hanna Carillo. Then the truth came out willingly. She was 31-year-old Kiber Calderon, a man. A man who had been arrested twice in NYC but was ultimately released under their “No-Bail” policy.

County Executive Bruce Blakeman was elated with the response by officers. “In this case, it was somewhat ingenious that this officer took the action that he took. You had a subject that was pointing a gun at the public, discharged the firearm on a public street, pointed the firearm at police officers, and then pointed the firearm at his head, which obviously meant that he might have committed suicide had not the police officer taken swift and effective action.”

While Calderon is already facing second and third-degree burglary and trespassing charges in NYC, Long Island officers will be charging him with nine counts. The charges will include menacing, reckless endangerment, criminal possession of a weapon, and possession of narcotics. After suffering only minor injuries, he is undergoing psychiatric testing before he ultimately heads to jail to await trial.
