Female Cop Shoots Gun Out of Robber's Hand
« on: October 25, 2010, 03:57:42 PM »

...and then one of her bullets hit the front door and LOCKED it!

The fearless cop who faced down an armed robber in a Brooklyn beauty parlor managed to shoot the pistol right out of the crook's hands, cops said Monday. And in a scene that would be over-the-top even for the most ridiculous Hollywood cop movie, one of Officer Feris Jones' bullets hit the front door - and locked it.

It was the first time Jones had fired her weapon in 20 years on the job.

"Her reserve under fire was matched only by her marksmanship," Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said at a police-only briefing Monday morning, according to NYPD spokesman Paul Browne.

Jones, a 50-year-old off-duty cop who got her hair done at Sabine's Hallway about once a month, had just sat down in one of the tiny salon's three chairs when the baby-faced bandit burst in Saturday evening.

"This ain't no joke! This is a robbery! I will kill you!" he barked, according to police.

Cox herded the four women in the salon - owner Sabine Bellevue, an employee, another customer and Jones - into a cramped bathroom at the back of the 7-foot wide store at 320 Franklin Ave. He started rifling drawers, looking for money.

Jones, an immigrant from Barbados who has worked in NYPD evidence collection for the last dozen years, never lost her cool. She pulled out her handgun, held it stealthily behind one jeans-clad leg, and told the other women to lie down on the floor while she made her move, Browne told reporters.

Jones stepped out of the bathroom into the salon, took aim at Cox from just 12 feet away, identified herself as a cop and told him not to move. Cox, who was born a month after Jones joined the NYPD in 1990, did not do the smart thing. Instead, holding his Ruger .44-caliber Magnum revolver with both hands, he fired four shots.

Two bullets narrowly missed Cox. One plugged the bathroom wall behind her.

Browne said the women in the bathroom might have been killed or seriously injured had Jones not anticipated that Cox might fire and told them to hit the deck.
