Parilla allegedly gunned down officer Charles Kondek while the 17-year veteran was responding to an unspecified call at 3:00 a.m. He then reportedly fled the scene, only to be apprehended a short time later.

Kondek, 45, was a father of five and a former New York Police Department officer. His death came less than a day after two NYPD officers were murdered during an ambush by a Brooklyn gunman.
