‘I’m putting wings on pigs today’: NY cop killer shot his girlfriend then BRAGGED on Instagram about what he was going to get revenge for Eric Garner and Mike Brown before launching the deadly attack and finally killing himself.
This is the man who shot dead two police officers in a sickening act of revenge for the deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown.
Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley, 28, shot his former girlfriend in Baltimore County, Maryland, at 5.45am on Saturday morning then travelled 190 miles to Brooklyn, New York.
There, he fired a fatal round of bullets at recently-married officer Wenjian Liu and father-of-one Rafael Ramos – before turning the gun on himself.
Witnesses said Brinsley walked out of a home with a gun in his hand at 2.47pm, crept up behind the officers’ patrol car, and systematically shot both men in the head through the passenger window.
He then walked to the Myrtle/Willoughby G train subway station where he shot himself in the head.
It came two hours after he posted a picture of a gun on Instagram with the chilling message: ‘I’m Putting Wings On Pigs Today. They Take 1 Of Ours…
‘Let’s Take 2 of Theirs #ShootThePolice #RIPErivGardner (sic) #RIPMikeBrown. This May Be My Final Post. I’m Putting Pigs In A Blanket.’
Tragically, Baltimore police had tried to apprehend Brinsley by alerting the NYPD after his morning shooting – but by the time a wanted flyer was issued, his attack was already under way.
