Missing Cop Radio Used to Transmit Fake Officer Down Calls

BUSHWICK — A person using a police radio sent cops rushing to the Bushwick Houses several times recently with a series of emergency 10-13 calls — the most urgent transmissions made when officers are hurt or under attack, cops said.

Each message sent cops scrambling to the housing complex near Bushwick Avenue and Moore Street, according to the NYPD. It's unclear how many calls have been made.

All transmissions were made from a radio that's known to be missing and responding officers found nobody hurt or needing help, police said.

Last year, NYPD officer Kevin Brennansurvived after being shot in the head in the Bushwick Houses.
