Winston Cox, who was injured when Police Officer Feris Jones returned fire, was arrested around 1 a.m. at a Bedford-Stuyvesant apartment. The New York Post reported the teen answered the door with his bleeding hands wrapped in paper towels. He was taken to a nearby hospital before he was charged with attempted murder and robbery last night.

Police were tipped off to Cox’s Bed-Stuy hideout after blanketing the neighborhood.
