NEW YORK (AP) - Police say a retiring New York Police Department commander was on hand to see his police officer son and the son’s partner arrest suspects in a shooting.

Deputy Inspector John “Jack” Lewis had decided to spend his second-to-last tour on patrol in a car with Officer John Lewis and the third officer when they responded to a report of the shooting around 4 a.m. Saturday outside a Brooklyn cafe.

The officers arrived to find an attempted robbery victim with a gunshot wound. They later found and arrested two armed suspects trying to leave a parking lot in a BMW.

After the arrest, a second victim walked into a precinct station house to report he was robbed at the same spot.

The elder Lewis has served 28 years on the force.
