It's being reported that two NYPD police officers were shot in Brooklyn at around 3pm on Saturday, in what one law enforcement source called "an execution." The shooting took place near the Tompkins Houses apartment buildings at Myrtle and Tompkins Avenues. Both officers have reportedly died.
The gunman reportedly was "pumping bullets" into their patrol car, which they were sitting in. The gunman then ran to a nearby subway station, where he was shot and killed. It's not clear if the police shot him or if he killed himself.
A high-ranking police official said:
"The perp came out of the houses, walked up behind the car and lit them up."
This is a completely tragic situation. Our thoughts are with the families and friends of these officers.

A fight involving three women broke out in the aisles after two women asked 27-year-old mother Chan Juan Sung to hush her baby on the 9am flight from Chongqing to Hong Kong.
Then the women exacerbated the situation by reclining theirs seats, which it was totally their right to do — but come on, the seats are small enough without taking up all the space possible (at least ask the person behind you if it's OK!), and you don't need to be so passive aggressive.
That's when the momma bear got angry and started swinging! Passenger Xiong Wan explained:
