Police Commissioner speaks out after officers’ deaths

Posted by wlpo on December 21, 2014

New York City’s police commissioner says 2 officers shot to death Saturday as they sat in their car were “assassinated – targeted for their uniform.” Commissioner Bill Bratton says gunman Ismaaiyl Brinsley shot and wounded his former girlfriend in Baltimore earlier Saturday and made online posts about killing police in retaliation for the killings of Eric Garner and Michael Brown by police.  Brinsley was chased by officers into a subway station.  He then shot himself in the head.
