NYPD deploys robot dog after woman shot during Brooklyn parking dispute

October 29, 2020

A fight over a parking spot ended with one combatant’s wife getting accidentally shot — and cops later deployed a robot “dog” when the gunman holed up in a nearby basement, according to police sources and photos from the scene.

The dispute happened around 10 p.m. Wednesday on Atkins Avenue near Sutter Avenue in Cypress Hills, cops said.

The 43-year-old suspect opened fire — striking a 42-year-old woman in the head, instead of her husband, the intended target.

The shooter then bolted into a nearby building where he barricaded himself, according to the sources.

The NYPD’s Emergency Services Unit responded, along with the robot — developed by Boston Dynamics and known as Spot, photos from the scene show.
