ben: it's 5:30. the gunman suspected of killing an nypd officer is in custody tonight. 30-year-old tyrone howard is accused of gunning down officer randolph holder last night during a chase along a pedestrian bridge in east harlem near the fdr drive and the east river. he was 33 and had been an officer for five years. police say howard is a career criminal with gang ties with at least one active warrant for his arrest at the time of last night's shooting. and this was the scene moments ago at the jeremiah gaffney funeral home where the body of officer holder just arrived to a hero's salute. dari: you know, a lot of people are shaking their heads tonight because officer holder is the fourth member of the nypd to be killed in the line of duty in 11 months. ben: even though the city says crime is down, the potential danger officers face never changes. lisa evers here now with more on what officers are dealing with every day.
5:30 pm
officer holder is reinforcing the sense that police officers' lives are always on the line and that deadly violence can erupt at any moment, especially with the large number of illegal guns on the street and especially in public housing developments. while overall crime is down, the number of officers killed in the line of duty is up. there were no incidents in 2012 or 2013. but four officers have been murdered in the last 11 months. violence in the public housing developments remains a persistent problem, despite major crackdowns by police and major gang busts like this one. being assigned as officer holder was to the housing division is a challenging post, says former nypd lieutenant darren porcher. >> public housing is one of the more dangerous assignments in the nypd. >> reporter: the constant calls and unknown dangers can wreak havoc with an officer's emotions. the doctor says that's where straining and professionalism

>> they respond to a lost cat and then to a domestic violence incident. and then after that, a car accident. then 15, 20 minutes later, you're responding to shots fired. so your anxiety goes up and down throughout the course of the day. >> reporter: he believes the officer went above and beyond by being proactive in his police work. >> i see him as a hero, stepping into the wake of violence and danger in hearing shots and being proactive and confronting the situation instead of waiting for backup. >> reporter: active duty police officers tell me another stress factor for them is the current climate. they're never sure how someone will react or if they're being hated simply for their badge and uniform. dari: thank you. well, khloe and lamar odom have called off their divorce. her lawyer asked to withdraw the papers that both signed to end their six-year marriage.
5:32 pm
i didn't realize it was that long. the request was granted. odom was found unconscious from a drug binge at a nevada brothel last week. that's what spurred this whole thing. he woke up from a coma several days later. khloe vowed to be by his side. ben: we wish them well. the vatican says a report by a newspaper claiming pope francis has a small, curable brain tumor, is not true. the report in the national daily said the 78-year-old pontiff recently traveled to a clinic to see a japanese specialist who is denying that report. the doctor reportedly determined a small dark spot on his brain could be cured without surgery. >> the news of the pope's health condition is totally unfounded. it is a totally irresponsible act of the italian news agency that released this. ben: the newspaper's editor expected the vatican to deny the story, but stands by it. dari: how about this? parents who are nervous about
