Lawyer praises NYPD’s new automatically locking holsters
A lawyer for the family of a Bronx deli clerk who was shot and killed by a suspect who unholstered an NYPD officer's gun praised the city's new security measures Wednesday.
The NYPD upgraded its officers' holsters to lock automatically after Efrain Guzman allegedly snatched a weapon from an officer's belt and fired off 15 shots — leaving Wali Camara dead.
Sanford Rubenstein, the attorney for Camara's family, called the upgraded holsters "good news."
Guzman appeared in court for just five minutes Wednesday. He faces charges of murder, attempted murder, manslaughter, criminal possession of a weapon, assault, robbery and menacing a police officer.
He is due back in court on May 30 and faces a maximum of life in prison if convicted.
