A second policeman was slightly wounded by shotgun pellets during three hours of snipping that followed the ambush Thursday night. Police said the snipers, believed to be members of street gangs, fired from a number of buildings in the Woodlawn area along East 63rd Street. Police did not fire back, commanders said. About 20 persons were arrested as more than 300 policemen moved into the area Thursday night and early yesterday but none was accused of shooting the policemen. Most were charged with disorderly conduct or resisting arrest. Police officials speculated the ambush in an alley behind a recently closed hotel may have been part of a street gang plan to draw additional police to the spot where they would targets for snipers. Lt. John Hart of the police gang intelligence unit said four of those in custody were arrested shortly before the attack on the police officers as they shattered "street lights in the area. Hart said the four, who were not identified immediately, said that a leader of the Black P. Stone Nation, a coalition of Negro street gangs, had ordered them to break the street lights "so gang members could shoot some policemen." Hart said most of those in custody are believed to be members of the Black P. Stone Nation. The critically wounded officer was James Alfano Jr., 30, married and the father of two children. Doctors said he already had received more than 70 pints of blood, necessitated by massive internal bleeding. Officials said more than 200 blood donors, mostly policemen, appeared at the hospital, where Alfano is under treatment, to give blood. Some of the police volunteers came from as far as St. Joseph, Mich. Alfano and two other policemen, all members of the gang intelligence unit,.were in an unmarked police car when they were ambushed as they drove into an alley behind the closed Southmoor Hotel. Alfano was struck in the back by some of a volley of shots fired as the car was forced to a halt at a discarded couch lying in the path of the car. His two companions, Detectives Richard Crowley, 35, and Richard Donohue, 23, were not hit. EKEND SPECIALS! prices effective Saturday and Sunday ... so hurry.
