Two NYPD officers were shot execution style as they sat in their patrol car, one of them fatally, the other officer is critically wounded.

The shooting occurred in Brooklyn, New York on Saturday, around 3 p.m. the New York Daily News reported.

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

An NYPD spokesman confirmed that two officers were shot and were immediately rushed to a nearby hospital.

A police official later told the Associated Press that one of the officers had been pronounced dead.

The New York Post  reported that both officers were shot in the head at point-blank range.

“It’s an execution,” one law enforcement source told The Post.

The gunman just started “pumping bullets” into the patrol car, another source said.

After the shooting, the gunman fled to a nearby subway station before being shot and killed. It is not revealed whether the suspect was shot by police or committed suicide.

The NYPD has come under fire since the choking death of Eric Garner, which has sparked demonstrations since a grand jury declined to indict the officer involved in Garner’s death.
