A gunman who apparently revealed his intent to "take 2 of theirs" on a social media site, ambushed and fatally shot two NYPD officers in their squad car Saturday, investigators said. Police Commissioner William Bratton condemned the attack as an "assassination." The shooter, identified by police as 28-year-old Ismaaiyl Brinsley, approached the patrol car at 2:47 p.m., took a shooter's stance, and fired several shots through the passenger side front window, the commissioner said. After firing on the officers, Beinsley shot and killed himself in a nearby subway station. Investigators believe Brinsley shot and injured his ex-girlfriend in Baltimore before coming to New York, Bratton said. The killings come at a time when the NYPD has faced criticism over its tactics, and NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio has come under fire from the city's largest police union for what it sees as the mayor's lack of support for police.
