Report: 2 NYPD Officers Were Killed As Revenge For Eric Garner

| by Charles Roberts

Two New York City Police Department officers were killed in Brooklyn in what appears to be a planned, execution-style attack.

NYPD officials have confirmed that two officers were shot while sitting in their patrol car at approximately 3:00 p.m. on Saturday. Both were rushed to the hospital, however, they ultimately succumbed to their injuries.

The alleged gunman fled to a nearby subway station immediately after the attack. He was found dead a short time later of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

According to both The New York Post and The Daily Mail, the alleged gunman was reportedly on a mission to “avenge Eric Garner.”

“They Take 1 Of Ours…Let’s Take 2 of Theirs,” the post said. It ended with: “This May Be My Final Post.”
