Critically injured suspect was out on bail for previous shooting

WABC Eyewitness News' Stacey Sager

(Farragut, Brooklyn -WABC, January 21, 2006)

Police in Brooklyn were involved in an early morning shootout with a man carrying an Uzi. But it's not the first time this suspect has been in the crosshairs of the NYPD.

It happened on Utica Avenue in Farragut.

Stacey Sager is live with the details.

One thing is clear about the suspect in this case: he doesn't like getting kicked out of clubs and restaurants. He was kicked out of local restaurant last June for smoking and the owner says the man nearly killed him. The this morning he was turned away from a club right up the street and that posed problems too: a shootout with police that left the gunman in critical condition.

It was just after 4:30 Saturday morning authorities say, that a 25-year-old man, Damien Henry, began firing at police on Utica Avenue.

The alleged weapon was a 9 mm Uzi. Al Zirino, who owns the bakery and ice cream shop up the block says he saw the whole thing on his surveillance video, which is now in the hands of police.

Al Zirino, Store Owner: "You could see it on the cameras and it went for about 30 seconds. There was a lot of rounds on the floor."

Police Tell us Damien Henry had tried to enter an after-hours club, showing a bouncer the Uzi. That's when someone at the club called police.

Meanwhile, the woman behind the door, who says she's the gunman's mother, had little to say about her son's criminal past.

Henry is out on bail for another shooting in June at a restaurant nearby, where the owner tells us Henry nearly killed him.

Police tell us the gun in that case was the same gun used by Allen Cameron in the November shooting that killed Brooklyn police officer Dillon Stewart.

Al Zirino: "When the system lets these guys hit the street, it makes it bad for everybody."

We can also tell you people in this neighborhood considered Damien Henry to be close friends of Allen Cameron, who is accused of killing that police officer.

Henry was accused of shooting another police officer bad in 2002 but was acquitted in that case. Today the police commissioner is saying this man should have never been out on the street.

You can only hope.

Given that this guy can't even legally own firearms of any kind, I bet that it is illegal.

Kind of a bitch toting an UZI around when you are tryig to have a drink, relax, and talk to some girls. What the hell is wrong with that guy?

It's a stolen gun linked in a murder.
It is atleast an sbr. Can't tell about FA.

Man has prior convictions, too.


Am I the only one that would have shot this fucker until he was dead 3 times over?
Now I know why I'm not a cop.......

Come on guys, the gun obviously made him do it. If it wasn't for the states nearby that sell evil baby killing assault weapons to anybody that wants one at gun shows, this would have never happened. The gun probably jumped up in his hands as he was innocently walking down the street on his way to donate his clothes to an orphanage, and forced him to act like a madman. If only the gun laws in New York were more strict, this kind of thing would never happen. This guy would be out earning his PHD or something instead of shooting at cops and babies. When will the nearby states learn from the wisdom of New York and ban all their guns too, so poor hapless victims like this guy will never be forced to attack people again?!!

BS.. criminals can't get guns in NY. There's all those laws and such.

This was obviously staged so Bloomey can push his national gun control agenda.

My sentiments exactly. Blame the object, not the person holding said object, it's the liberal way.

I sincerely hope for our sake that it was truly illegal weapon (real Uzi, smuggled in); but who cares, Bloomberg will paint another set of horns on law-abiding gun owners in the coming hours/days at some anti-gun circle-jerk press-conference.

if you look close you can see it has a slotted bolt that makes it either a semi, an illegal conversion or a registered bolt. my guess is it is a semi with a fbi barrel in it

from the looks of the pic, I'd say its a semi with a home hacksaw job on the barrel, the barrel is shorter than the normal SMG barrel, and I cant think of many reasons why a real SMG owner would chop theirs any shorter

Good thing the perp was packing a 9mm or somebody could have gotten hurt.

I love how the reporter emphasized the "9mm OOOOOZZZZII" part.

The reporter is also a douchebag for harassing the guys mother through her door.

Man that bouncer was a fat fucker.

Right, because people accused of crimes are ALWAYS guilty.

"Today the police commissioner is saying this man should have never been out on the street."



What a concept



Hey, if he was acquitted, it means a court decided he was not guilty. So why shouldn't he have been on the street?
