Two uniformed NYPD officers were some minutes ago shot dead — execution style — as they sat in their marked police car on a Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, street corner. According to New York Post, 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. One law enforcement source told The Post of the 3 p.m. shooting:
“It’s an execution. The gunman just started “pumping bullets” into the patrol car.”
The suspected gunman fled to a nearby subway station where he was fatally shot. Preliminary reports were unclear on whether he was shot by police or his own hand.An eyewitness continued:
“They engaged the guy and he did himself. I heard shooting, — four or five shots. It sounded like from a single gun. Ambulances and police cars rushed to the scene, he said.
