Two NYPD officers sitting in their squad car after a counterterrorism drill were executed in a hail of gunfire this afternoon by a young African-American male assassin apparently radicalized on the hate spewed forth from Ferguson and Eric Garner activists, the mainstream media, and Democrat politicians.
The NY Post reports:
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.
Sources seem to be telling former NYPD officer and journalist John Cardillo that the suspect committed suicide in the subway as other NYPD officers closed in.
Also now confirming suicide of cop killer.

The murderer’s final two posts to his Instagram account seem to confirm his intentions, motivations, weapon, and his role in the shooting.
The second-to-last post in his Instagram feed shows what appears to be a Taurus 92 series pistol, and the caption:
“I’m Putting Wings On Pigs Today. They Take 1 of Ours….. Let’s Take 2 of Theirs. #ShootThePolice #RIPErivGardner #RIPMikeBrown This May Be My Final Post I’m Putting Pigs In a Blanket”
His final post to his Instagram account shows one lace-less shoe and multicam-pattern camouflage pants.
They appear to match the NY Post photos of the dead suspect on the EMS gurney removing body of the murderer from the subway.
The alleged murderer’s Instagram account, http://instagram.com/dontrunup/, has been removed within the past half-hour.
We’ll cover this story more closely as additional details become available.
