The article goes on to state the following:
After one arrest, court papers show, Ransom was taken to a psychiatric ward.
Detective Brian Simonsen died after being struck once in the chest as he and six other officers fired at Ransom, who charged toward the entrance of a T-Mobile store in Queens while simulating pulling the trigger of his fake handgun, police said.
The officers fired a total of 42 times, NYPD Chief of Department Terence Monahan said.
