Gunman Kills Two NYPD Officers In Brooklyn

"They were, quite simply, assassinated," said NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton, of the two officers shot in their patrol car Saturday in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn. Police said the gunman, Ismaaiyl Brinsley, who shot his ex-girlfriend earlier in the day in Baltimore County, also killed himself.
