Two NYPD officers have been shot by a suspect who ambushed their patrol car ‘execution style’ in Brooklyn. The perpetrator was chased by police and reportedly died of a self-inflicted gun wound. According to AP, one officer has died while the second is in critical condition in hospital. However, CBS New York earlier reported that both officers succumbed to gunshot wounds, citing city councilman Robert Cornegy. The shooting took place in Brooklyn outside of the Tompkins Houses at around 3pm. The shooter reportedly came out of the building before shooting the officers patrolling the area. According to the witnesses he then ran away into the subway where he was either shot by police chasing him or died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
