tom hall/iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — A plainclothes New York Police Department officer was in critical condition Saturday night after he was shot by a man who opened fire on his unmarked car, city officials said.

Officer Brian Moore, a five-year veteran, was on duty with his partner Eric Jansen, 30, as part of an anti-crime unit in the Queens Village section of the city when he was shot at around 6:15 p.m., police said.

Moore and his partner were in their unmarked patrol car when they saw a man walking in the street adjust something in the waistband of his pants that appeared to be a gun, NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton said Saturday night.

When the officers told the man to stop, he turned, pulled out a gun and began shooting into the car, Bratton said.

Moore, 25, was shot in the face, and was rushed by police cruiser to Jamaica Hospital Center, where he was visited by Mayor Bill de Blasio.

Please keep the injured police officer, his family, and the entire New York City Police Department in your thoughts tonight.

— NYC Mayor’s Office (@NYCMayorsOffice) May 3, 2015

“It is a painful day for all of us,” said de Blasio.

Moore listed in critical but stable condition after undergoing surgery.

The suspect fled on foot, sparking a massive manhunt through the neighborhood, with officers searching houses, on roofs, in backyards, and checking under cars.

Witnesses told police that a man matching the suspect’s description had gone into a house, and the suspect, identified as Demetrius Blackwell, was arrested there, Bratton said.

Bratton said Blackwell has a long arrest record.

NYPD Commissioner William Bratton tweeted on Saturday night that the officer’s family was at the hospital.

Our injured officer who was shot tonight while keeping NYC safe is in our prayers. At Jamaica Hospital now with family.

(LAS VEGAS) — The fight of the century between two of the best welterweights in boxing history has declared a winner.

In front of numerous A-List celebrities, thousands of fans and millions of television viewers Floyd Mayweather, Jr. defeated Manny Pacquiao via unanimous judge’s decision.

Mayweather endured several flurries of punches from Pacquiao, being backed against the ropes several times but Pacquiao could not land the knockout he needed.

The fighters lasted all twelve rounds, with Pacquiao landing 81 punches to Mayweather’s 148.

The fight was in such demand that it was delayed more than 30 minutes as consumers attempting to buy the Pay Per View found blank screens. So many people attempted to buy the fight that the service crashed.

The title bout was estimated to draw nearly $500 million.

Christian Petersen/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — Chris Paul wasn’t going to let a bum hamstring stop him from being on the court in Game 7 of the Los Angeles Clippers’ first round playoff series versus the San Antonio Spurs.

Paul, who left the game at the end of the first quarter to tend to a left hamstring strain, returned in the second quarter. He played the rest of the way, scoring a team-high 27 points including what proved to be the game winning shot with a second remaining as the Clippers top the Spurs 111-109 Saturday to advance to the Western Conference semifinals.

The Spurs once again fail to repeat as NBA champions, but they put up a good fight. In a game that featured 31 lead changes, their old horse, Tim Duncan, was fouled with a little over eight seconds remaining. He knocked down two free throws to tie the game at 109.

On the following play, Paul drove Danny Green into the paint, pulled up, and knocked down a five-foot jumper to take the lead. The Spurs had one last crack at tying the game, but Boris Diaw’s inbounds pass that was meant for Kawhi Leonard, who was driving to the hoop, was swatted away by Matt Barnes as the clock struck zero.

Duncan finished the game with 27 points and 11 rebounds.

The No. 3 seed Clippers advance to the second round where they will take on the No. 2 seed Houston Rockets.

Game 1 is Monday at 9:30 p.m. ET in Houston.

Mike Stobe/Getty Images(BOSTON) — The New York Yankees have no intention of paying designated hitter Alex Rodriguez a $6 million bonus for tying Willie Mays for fourth place on the all-time home runs list.

According to multiple reports, Rodriguez was supposed to receive $6 million for reaching each of the following home run milestones: 660 (Willie Mays), 714 (Babe Ruth), 755 (Hank Aaron), 762 (Barry Bonds), and 763, which would make him the all-time home run champ.

“We have the right but not the obligation to do something, and that’s it,” Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Saturday. “We’re going to follow the contract as we follow all contracts, so there is no dispute, from our perspective.”

That contract, according to the Yankees, states that Rodriguez would not earn the bonuses if the team could not market the achievement. The Yankees believe this can’t be done because of Rodriguez’s troubled past with his admitted usage of illegal PEDs.

Rodriguez has refrained from commenting on the issue publicly.

The 39-year-old has 14 days from the time the Yankees refuse to pay the bonus to file an appeal, according to baseball’s collective bargaining agreement.

Joe Robbins/Getty Images(BOSTON) — The Boston Red Sox called up top prospect, catcher Blake Swihart.

The 23-year-old Swihart comes up to replace catcher Ryan Hanigan who underwent surgery Saturday on the knuckle of his right pinkie finger.

Swihart started and hit ninth in the Red Sox 4-2 loss to the New York Yankees Saturday. The youngster went 1-for-3 with an infield single, a walk, and a run scored.

“I was definitely nervous, but I had to turn it into focus,” Swihart said. “I had a big job to do.”

Swihart, who the Red Sox selected with the 26th overall pick of the 2011 MLB June Amateur Draft, played in 18 games for Triple-A Pawtucket before the promotion. During that time, he hit .338 with no home runs, 11 RBIs, one stolen base, and a .392 on-base percentage.
