NEW YORK -- A New York Police Department officer has died after he was shot in the head while chasing a gunman in East Harlem, authorities said.

Randolph Holder, 33, was shot Tuesday night while responding to reports of a man with a gun in the area, Police Commissioner William J. Bratton said.

"He was an immigrant ... in the words of Abraham Lincoln, a man who gave the full measure of devotion for a city he loved," Mayor Bill De Blasio said.

Holder was the fourth officer killed in New York City in 11 months, Bratton said.

He is married and joined the department in 2010.

The suspect was arrested four blocks away, and is in custody with gunshot wounds to the leg, authorities said.
