NEW YORK — An NYPD sergeant died Saturday after suffering an apparent medical episode while on duty.

He was pronounced dead at the hospital. Less than an hour later, the NYPD lost another member – Det. Shantay Neal-Baker, a 20-year veteran – to COVID-19 complications. 

"Please keep their family, friends and colleagues in your thoughts and prayers," NYPD Chief of Detectives Rodney Harrison said.
