In New York City, a tragic death of two police officers had occurred on Saturday, December 20th. 2 N.Y.P.D. offers were killed in a Brooklyn Ambush with the suspect committing suicide just after.
According to NY Times, “Two police officers sitting in their patrol car in Brooklyn were shot at point-blank range and killed on Saturday, afternoon by a man who, officials said, had traveled to the city from Baltimore vowing to kill officers. The suspect then committed suicide with the same gun, the authorities said.”
The suspect had made statements on social media suggesting that he planned to kill police officers and was angered about the Eric Garner and Michael Brown cases. Authorities in Baltimore sent a warning that Mr. Brinsley had made these threats, but it was received in New York at essentially the same time as the killings, officials said.
