Two Police Officers Are Fatally Shot in Brooklyn; Suspect Is Also Dead

In an apparent targeted killing, two police officers were shot in their patrol car in Brooklyn on Saturday afternoon by a man who later fatally shot himself in the head, police officials said.

The shootings come at a time when the city is roiled by demonstrations after a grand jury decided not to indict an officer in the chokehold death of a Staten Island man.

The fatal ambush on Saturday took place near Myrtle and Tompkins Avenues in Bedford-Stuyvesant.

“It looks like they were shot in the upper body,” Deputy Chief Kim Royster said.

She said that a man fled into a subway station after shooting the officers from the patrol car’s passenger side, and that the police had recovered a gun from the scene.

Chief Royster said the man opened fire on the police officers, ran up Myrtle and went into a subway station. The man later died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, she said.

Fire Department officials said that a 911 call came in around 2:50 p.m. reporting that two people had been shot.

Charlie Hu, the manager of a liquor store at the corner near the shooting, said he saw two police officers slouched over in the front seat of their patrol car. At least one of the officers, Mr. Hu said, appeared to have been shot in the head.

A high-ranking police official called the shooting an assassination.

“He walked up to the car, fired several shots,” the official said. “They were sitting in the car. He approached from behind, opened fire and clearly his intent was to assassinate them.”

At the scene of the shooting, Andy Jordan, 39, who lives nearby, said tensions were high in the neighborhood, adding, “We need to look at how we got here.”

The last officer killed by gunfire in the line of duty was Peter Figoski, in 2011.

Second arrest over off-duty PC Neil Doyle death


A second man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering an off-duty police constable in Liverpool.

Police said the arrested man, 30, was also suspected of two assault offences.

PC Neil Doyle, 36, was attacked near the Aloha Club in the city centre early on Friday and died of bleeding around the brain.

A 28-year-old suspect handed himself in earlier. The suspects, both from Huyton in Merseyside, are being interviewed by detectives.

Merseyside Police has been granted permission to keep the 28-year-old in custody for further questioning until Monday night.

Officers said the 30-year-old suspect had been arrested on suspicion of murder and "two offences of Section 18 assault" - causing grievous bodily harm with intent.

PC Doyle was with two colleagues when they were assaulted on Colquitt Street, during a Christmas night out.

A post-mortem examination revealed major blood vessels were damaged, and police said his injury was consistent with an assault.

'Unprovoked attack'
Investigators are considering the possibility that the three men were attacked after being recognised as police officers, although a Merseyside Police spokesman stressed it was "not a set-in-stone motive".

Chief Constable Sir Jon Murphy said the off-duty officers had been subjected to "an apparently unprovoked attack by a group of males".

"Following intensive emergency treatment at the scene Constable Doyle was taken to Royal Liverpool Hospital, where he sadly died a short time later," he said.

PC Doyle had been due to go on honeymoon with his wife Sarah, next month.

In a statement she said: "Neil was very well loved by all of his family, friends and colleagues and it is a great loss to us all.

"We are finding it extremely difficult to come to terms with what has happened and need time to be left to grieve."

Merseyside Police Federation chairman Peter Singleton said PC Doyle was "a good cop that any officer would be proud to call a colleague".
