(NEWSER)– As New York City grapples with the fallout from the execution-style murders of two NYPD officers, Police Commissioner Bill Bratton yesterday lamented that "two of New York's Finest were shot and killed with no warning."
Except, as he amended, "the warning was coming." What went down, via reporting in the Baltimore Sun and DNAinfo: Police in Baltimore County says that shortly before 6am yesterday, 28-year-old shooter Ismaaiyl Brinsley shot and wounded an ex-girlfriend at an apartment complex outside Baltimore. She is listed in serious condition, but expected to survive. Police believe he then traveled to New York City, posting threats on social media along the way.
