The bloody scene in Brooklyn is about to spark more anger and dangerous tension between cops and citizen protesters who are still furious over the choking death of Eric Garner by NYPD officers.
Two uniformed officers were shot dead execution style on Saturday and the alleged killer left behind a chilling message, according to the New York Post..
The Post has released photos of the alleged suspect’s Instagram posting prior to the murder (below).
“I’m Putting Wings on Pigs Today,” he wrote. “They Take 1 Of Ours … Let’s Take 2 of Theirs. #RIPEri(c)Gardner #RIPMikeBrown.”
“Never Had A Hot Gun On Your Waist And Blood On Your Shoe…***** You Ain’t Been Through What I Been Through You Not Like Me And I’m Not Like You. #BrooklynGoHard #ConeyIsland.”
The New York Post reported:
The gunman was a fugitive who had just murdered his girlfriend in Baltimore Saturday morning, sources told The Post.
Minutes after shooting the two officers, he, too, was dead.
He fled to a nearby subway station, the G-train station at Myrtle and Willoughby avenues, where, as pursuing cops closed in, he shot himself on a crowded platform, sources told The Post.
“They engaged the guy and he did himself,” one investigator said of the gunman’s demise.
Both shooting scenes — above and below ground — were scenes of blood and terror.
