2 NYPD cops shot dead ‘execution style’ in Brooklyn

Two uniformed NYPD officers were shot dead — execution style — as they sat in their marked police car on a Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, street corner.

According to preliminary reports, both officers were working overtime as part of an anti-terrorism drill when they were shot point-blank by a single gunman who approached their car at the corner of Myrtle and Tompkins avenues.

“It’s an execution,” one law enforcement source told The Post of the 3 p.m. shooting.

The gunman just started “pumping bullets” into the patrol car, another source said.

The suspected gunman fled to a nearby subway station at Myrtle and Willoughby avenues, where he was fatally shot. Preliminary reports were unclear on whether he was shot by police or his own hand.

“They engaged the guy and he did himself,” one investigator said.

“I heard shooting, — four or five shots,” ear-witness Derrick McKie, 49, told The Post.

“It sounded like from a single gun,” he said. Ambulances and police cars rushed to the scene, he said.

“I saw an officer being put on a stretcher,” he said. “There was lots of chaos and confusion.”

Carmen Jimenez, 32, a social worker from Bedford-Stuyvesant, was on the subway platform when the gunman ran inside, pursued by officers.

“Everything happened so quick,” said Jimenez, who is eight months pregnant. “We were standing waiting for the G train. We heard arguing from the other end of the platform.

It looked like two cops came in there was lots of yelling and they said, ‘Everybody get down.’

“We tried to get out of there, and there was a lot of shouting, people were screaming, people were trying to run.

“I threw myself on the floor. I was afraid for my life and afraid for my baby.”

Well...  I can't get that last vid to load - here or on YT - so I don't know what "the shooter said his motives were" in that vid.  But MY money is on more divide & conquer psyop.

Anything is possible, but my $$ is on what the shooter said his motives were.

Anything is possible. Shooter may have been mind controlled too.

@nikki - 

Interesting theory.

It is possible that the shooter was actually despondent about police brutality, IMHO.

Let's see...2 cops are ambushed during a terror drill in Bed Sty. NYPD is doing a terror drill in Bed Sty because???  Are they worried terrorists might do us a favor and wipe this chitty neighborhood from the map? And the shooter just happens to be Muslim who then kills himself? Hmm.

Just curious...  How did that cameraperson know, from that distance, that "two cops were shot in the head?"  Nothing on that footage reveals that...

I wonder if THIS story is true...  Sure would go a long way in justifying more draconian measures.  Just saying.

Maybe now the police will not be so biased against people and especially black people.   I only hope whoever is doing this doesn't forget the crooked prosecutors and corupt robe wearers, and the useless/paid off politicians.   There should be a hunting season so the people can clean up this country's vermin every so often.   The whole "criminals Injustice System", run by criminals, and for criminals, making jobs for all the Dept of Corruptions (State and Federal DOC's) system.
