MOORE DAILY NEWS WRITERS Cop was pinned between SUVs when driver pulled back, then went forward. Cop wearing gloves examines gun at scene of confrontation. A city cop who was pinned between two vehicles after a car chase shot an armed suspect to death in Brooklyn yesterday, authorities said. The incident unfolded 10 minutes after cops began following a red Mitsubishi Montero SUV that was barreling southwest on Kings Highway at speeds up to 90 mph just after 1 p.m. "He was a crazy person," said Stella Lipori, 66, who witnessed the chaos. "He was like a maniac. He was driving like a demon." After several near-collisions and a blown red light, the driver, Katrell Butler, 28, stopped near Troy Ave. in East Flatbush, cops said. Two plainclothes officers assigned to the 73rd Precinct got out of an unmarked car to question him. A male officer, an ex-Marine with three years on the NYPD and more than 160 arrests, went to the driver's side door. A female sergeant, with six years on the force and more than 280 arrests, went to the back of the passenger side. Both cops spotted the driver holding a 9-mm. handgun, police said. Butler allegedly lurched his vehicle backward, hitting a street sign as he tried to make a getaway. Then he pulled forward, pinning the male officer between the driver's side of the Montero and the side of a parked SUV. As Butler raised his gun, the pinned officer whipped out his service weapon and fired three times, killing Butler and wounding the suspect's passenger in the leg, police said. "It's hard to believe," said the dead man's mother, Monique Butler. "I have a 17-year-old daughter who is very close to him. How am I going to explain this?" The mom demanded a full investigation and said the officer shot her son, a father of four, "because he had dreadlocks." No they shot your son cause you raised a worthless piece of shit. Sources said there were two open warrants for Butler's arrest in Pennsylvania. His criminal record there included arrests for rape, assault and criminal possession of a weapon, they added. The passenger, Greg Brown, 34, who a police source said also has a criminal record in Pennsylvania, wasn't charged. He was in stable condition at Kings County Hospital. "A preliminary investigation indicates the shooting was within department guidelines," said Deputy Police Commissioner Paul Browne. The officer hit by the car, a married father from Long Island, was also in stable condition at Kings County Hospital. Police said that although he is relatively new to the NYPD, he has about 20 years of experience with the Marines. More than 30 cops responded to the crime scene and as many as a dozen of the Finest rocked the back of the parked SUV to free the injured officer.
