Retired Greenburgh Police Officer Shot--in stable condition
Release Date: July 14, 2015

Received this update from Police Chief McNerney about retired police officer Peter Schmidt, a highly respected and well liked retired officer who was shot today responding to a burglary.
We hope he has a speedy and total recovery.
At approximately 3:45pm, retired police officer Peter Schmidt confronted apparent burglars as they were walking from the rear of #5 Payne Street in the Elmsford section of the Township. Officer Schmidt lives in the neighborhood and knew the house was unoccupied at the time. After a brief discussion, one of the subjects shot Schmidt twice, once in the arm and once in the torso. Schmidt’s son, an active Greenburgh Police Officer (off-duty at the time) ran to the scene and observed the suspects leaving the scene in a blue BMW. Officer Schmidt immediately relayed this information and the license plate number to Greenburgh Police. Within minutes, the City of Yonkers Police Department advised that they had the vehicle stopped on the Sprain Brook Parkway in the area of the Cross County Parkway. The subjects were positively identified and placed under arrest.
Retired Officer Schmidt is stable at this time.
