"It looks like they were shot in the upper body," Deputy Chief Kim Royster told the New York Times.
The suspect then ran to the near boy subway station where he shot himself in the head. "They were, quite simply, assassinated," police commissioner Bill Bratton said.
The killings have increased the divide between the NYPD - following a grand jury's decision not to indict the officer who killed unarmed State Island man Eric Garner in July- and Mayor Bill De Blasio. Police officers turned their backs on De Blasio when he arrived at police headquarters for a press conference, and police union head Patrick Lynch told reporters that "there's blood on my hands".
