The NYPD officer from North Baldwin who was dragged by a stolen car Saturday night in Brooklyn remains in critical condition, Police Commissioner James O’Neill said Tuesday.

Like he did Monday, O’Neill asked the public to pray for Officer Dalsh Veve, 35, a nine-year veteran assigned to the 67th Precinct.

“An extraordinary cop, extraordinary man, extraordinary family. They need us,” O’Neill said at a police ceremony in Manhattan. “His colleagues in the 6-7 Precinct need us.”

Veve, married with a 2-year-old daughter, was critically injured Saturday night in East Flatbush, police said, after responding with other 67th Precinct officers to reports of shots fired. After Veve approached a parked Honda Civic to question the 15-year-old driver, the car sped off, police said, dragging the officer more than three blocks. Veve fired two shots, hitting the boy in the face before falling to the street.

The car had been stolen from Valley Stream, the NYPD said.

Police said the teen was expected to face attempted murder charges, but it was unclear whether he would be charged as an adult. Three others were in the car, including a 17-year-old boy who police said was cooperating. Two other passengers were charged with hindering prosecution.

Eboni Clinton, 19, and Jeronda Oliver, 18, remained in custody Tuesday and are scheduled to appear in court Friday, according to court records.
