Sgt. Ritchard Blake is seen in the clip arguing with Thavone Santana just under the Livonia Avenue station in East New York on Thursday morning. Blake shared with responding officers that Santana, 21, (inset) had tried to rob him. But further investigation revealed that the two were in the midst of a spat over a woman that 40-year-old Blake has a 10-year-old son with. Santana is expected to survive, having been shot in the jaw once and undergoing multiple surgeries. Blake has been stripped of his gun and badge and is currently being investigated.
