  1. Gunman Shoots, Kills Two NYPD Officers

    They died simply because they were in uniform. A gunman shot and killed two police officers in Brooklyn last night. Suspected shooter Ismaaiyl Brinsley — disgruntled over the Eric Garner and Michael Brown cases  — reportedly traveled from Baltimore to the Big Apple in a bid to kill authorities. Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos were shot dead in their patrol car, and Brinsley committed suicide as police closed in around him. President Obama condemned the murders and asked Americans to reject violence and “turn to words that heal.”
