A deranged Baltimore gang member shot his girlfriend before driving to Brooklyn where he executed 2 NYPD police officers as they sat in their patrol unit on Saturday.

Ismaaiyl Brinsley, 28, reportedly shot officers Rafael Ramos, left, and Wenjian Liu point blank in the head as they ate lunch in their patrol car at the corner of Myrtle and Tompkins Avenues in Bedford-Stuyvesant. Witnesses say Brinsley approached on the passenger side of the patrol unit and fired into the car just before 3 p.m.

He then fled to a nearby subway where he turned the gun on himself. Brinsley (pictured above on a stretcher) was pronounced dead at Brooklyn hospital. The 2 officers were later pronounced dead at Woodhull hospital.

“He just walked up and shot that cop in the head,” a witness told the NY Daily News.

"The perp came out of the houses, walked up behind the car and lit them up,” a high-ranking police official told the NY Daily News.

Prior to leaving Baltimore, Brinsley shot his former girlfriend in the abdomen. She is expected to survive her gunshot wound.

Brinsley forewarned of his deadly intentions on his now-shuttered Instagram account.

“I’m Putting Wings On Pigs Today. They Take 1 Of Ours...Let’s Take 2 of Theirs… This May Be My Final Post,” Brinsley wrote under a photo of a silver handgun. Brinsley said he was avenging the deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown -- 2 unarmed black men killed by police in NY and Ferguson, Mo.

NYPD officers, past and present, are criticizing NY Mayor Bill de Blasio for "throwing the police under the bus."

Petitions are being circulated discouraging de Blasio from attending the funerals of any fallen officers.

From the NY Daily News:

Brinsley is believed to be a member of a Baltimore gang, Black Guerilla Family, sources said. The gang has vowed retribution for the deaths of Garner and Brown. Garner died after being put in a chokehold by NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo on July 17 on Staten Island. Brown, who was unnarmed, was shot dead by Ferguson, Mo. cop Darren Wilson on Aug. 9th. Neither cop was indicted by grand juries, sparking national protests.

“I have spoken to the Garner family and we are outraged by the early reports of the police killed in Brooklyn today," said the Rev. Al Sharpton in a statement Saturday evening. "Any use of the names of Eric Garner and Michael Brown, in connection with any violence or killing of police, is reprehensible and against the pursuit of justice in both cases.

    I have a feeling we know what the narrative is going to be here.....

    Between Azalea Banks (truthful words) and this clown, the story on Monday will no longer be about police violence, the criminalization of blacks men, or the protests, but about a persecuted white rapper, good, honorable police officers and violent black men. SMH

    Ya know, if I were a member or dating a member of Black Guerilla Family, I would be heading for the hills. You all have targets on your back. Cops are the most ruthless, vengeful gang out there, and your people took out two of them. Another reason to be thankful I'm not from Baltimore.

    The first reports didnt say he killed himself. Somehow it changed throughout the day :tea:

    @Topic,

    The previous posts pretty much summed up my initial thoughts. As much as I hate to say this.....this incident may be the catalyst to help people see the frustration that many Blacks harbor internally. Though I DO NOT CONDONE IN ANY WAY what he did, I understand the anger behind it. Black people are tired of feeling like their lives don't matter.

    My heart goes out to the families of the deceased. This is the worst news a person could ever receive....that their loved ones are not coming back home. I have a feeling that this is the beginning of more rioting and warring, although I hope I am wrong.

    As history and the recent spate of events have shown us, the police are not to be messed with. They have too many connections, money, and power. They are some of the most hardened criminals and unlike layman's criminals, more oft than not, they are absolved of any culpability, thus reinforcing maladaptive behavior.

    Like Keesh said, I am just going to pray and sit back and watch what America's walls gone look like.

    Betta day aftah while.....there will be a betta day.....a betta day, oooh child....there will be a betta day, aftah while... :whistle:

    On a more ratchet note - Is that boy up there on a stretcher in Black Chippendale's drawls? :blink: If he was finna go out, he could have at least put on some business casual or his Sunday suit. :think:

    @Taylor,

    How you doing, bae? Chile, I couldn't help but to notice that. I mean, just all sorts of misconduct. They could have covered up his nether regions as a formality. I mean, I'm just sayin. :yes:

    Hello all! :hi:

    I'm just :pray: that these fools in Atlanta don't pull no more stunts like yesterday, and especially not like this.

    Traffic is too bad to be dealing with this foolishness. It took us 45 minutes to move 2 miles down Ashford-Dunwoody Road yesterday. I should have bought my gifts in Florida. This traffic makes NO damn sense. :no:

  • CaliYoruba

    @69 Why d you wait until the last minute? :rofl:

  • spiceykay

    I kinda felt that something like this would happen because the cops especially the good ones were going to be collateral damage for the bad ones to make them understand. Sadly know people are blaming President Obama, Holder and the mayor for race baiting when we know that isn't the case. Several protest have occurred peaceful in NY but the day after the police protest they can breathe this happened but they don't seem to get that part. RIP to the officers

    Thats part of the orange safety straps not orange undies. The first reports here in NY said someone chased him in the station & shot him. :shrugs:

  • http://youtu.be/COjlQLe2JV0 #TEAMTHIS Smack that bootay :shakebutt: puppylove

    This is crazy. If he wanted vengeance he should have taken out the cop who killed Eric Garner. He wanted attention, and I will give him NONE. :pray: for the families who lost loved ones, and a long slow burn in hell for this asshole. People out here holding die-ins and shutting down traffic PEACEFULLY. He does nothing for the movement. He is NOT a part of the movement.

  • sassyshe

    This is so sad but I don't know why the cops didn't expect this it happens every time some major upheaval occurs in NYC, the side that feels wronged always retaliate and then chaos ensues.

    I heard this fool from the Embarcadero Apartments off Old National in College Park.

    I agree with everything you said. One, he killed two random police officers. Minority police officers at that with no connection to Staten Island or the officer that did the horrible deed. Two, this is going to make the peaceful protestors look horrible.

    NYPD can't go around with their I Can Breathe campaign thus taunting the family of the deceased. This is not the reason the lone mental basket case committed a crime. However, to mock a man's last dying words was bound to bring out the Karma Fairy!

  • Unshakable

    @DoNotDelete,

    Babay! You betta say that! The writing has been on the wall for some time. Again, not condoning what this guy did, but someone was bound to extract so called "vengeance" sooner or later. It was only a matter of time. Can't keep killing Black folk, getting acquitted for killing Black folk, then turn around and taunt the Black folk and not expect anything in return. That being said, I hope more Blacks don't start wildin out and claiming retribution for Mr. Garner and Mr. Brown in the same breath.

    The cops need to acknowledge the need for change in their culture :yes:
    Camera/Audio would show how they speak to HUMANS :tea:
