NEW YORK—Two New York City Police officers were shot and killed while sitting in their patrol car in Brooklyn on Saturday afternoon, police sources said.

The officers were shot execution-style in an ambush near the intersection of Myrtle and Tompkins avenues in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood shortly before 3 p.m., police said. The gunman fled into a nearby subway station and fatally shot himself as pursuing officers closed in, police said.

A high-ranking police official said preliminary information indicated the officers were working an anti-terrorism detail when a suspect walked up and shot them without warning.

Another source said the officers were shot at “point-blank” range. A gun was recovered from the scene, police said.

Investigators believe the gunman may have fled to New York from the Baltimore area with intention of killing cops, one of the sources said. He is believed to have shot a woman in the Baltimore area Saturday morning, the source said.

A person believed to be the gunman also posted a photo of a silver handgun on Instagram about three hours before the police shooting, writing “I’m Putting Wings on Pigs Today,” one of the police sources said. In another post, he wrote: “They Take 1 Of Ours . . . Let’s Take 2 of Theirs. This May Be My Final Post,” the source said.

The last NYPD officer killed in the line of duty was Peter Figoski, 47, a West Babylon resident and highly decorated 22-year veteran of the NYPD. He was shot in the face and killed after responding to a robbery call in Brooklyn Dec. 12, 2011.
