Gun Man Shoots 2 New York Police Officers And Later Kill HimSelf
BHR Hollywood Reports...............Two uniformed NYPD officers were shot dead Saturday afternoon as they sat in their marked police car on a Brooklyn street corner — in what investigators believe was a crazed gunman’s ­assassination-style mission to avenge Eric Garner and Michael Brown.

 The suspect then committed suicide with the same gun.

The officers, Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, were in the car near Myrtle and Tompkins Avenues in Bedford-Stuyvesant in the shadow of a tall housing project when the gunman, Ismaaiyl Brinsley, walked up to the passenger-side window and assumed a firing stance, Police Commissioner William J. Bratton said.

 Mr. Brinsley shot several rounds into the heads.

Bratton said that the suspect had earlier shot and seriously wounded a woman believed to be his ex-girlfriend in Baltimore.

Baltimore police received information that Brinsley had made threatening comments about police, and sent a warning to police in New York.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder called the attack "an unspeakable act of barbarism."

De Blasio also called the shootings an "assassination."
