2 New York City police officers shot in car, killed
In an apparent targeted killing, two police officers were shot in their patrol car in Brooklyn on Saturday afternoon by a man who had shot his girlfriend earlier that day in Baltimore, law enforcement officials said. The man then fled to a nearby subway station and fatally shot himself in the head. 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.
