Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley, 28, is the man responsible for shooting dead two police officers in a shocking act of revenge for the deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown.

Police say Brinsley, 28, shot his ex girlfriend in Baltimore County, Maryland, early Saturday morning then travelled to Brooklyn, New York, where he pumped bullets at officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos – before taking his own life.

Witnesses said Brinsley walked out of a home with a gun just before 3pm walk behind the patrol car where the officers sat, and in an execution style hit, shot both in the head through the passenger window.

Brinsley then made his way to the Myrtle/Willoughby G train subway station where he put a bullet in his head, taking his life.

Two hours before the murder, Brinsley posted an image of a gun on Instagram with the telling 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.’

Baltimore police attempted to arrest Brinsley after the first shooting and alerted the NYPD, however as the alert came in, the shootings were taking place.

Liu was recently married and Ramos, who just celebrated his 40th birthday leaves behind a 13-year-old son.

Both were rushed to Woodhull Medical Center where they were pronounced dead.

Awk Smith, who was friends with Brinsley told the Daily Mail the man had been ‘acting strange’ in the wake of the Eric Garner grand jury trial.

Father-of-six Garner was killed by NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo, who arrested him for selling loose cigarettes on the street, then held him in a fatal chokehold.
The killing provoked global outrage, sparked violent protests across the US, and exposed severe racial divisions in New York City.

‘We all noticed he was acting strange… different, it was kind of like he wasn’t there when you spoke to him. He wasn’t saying very much and he wasn’t performing. He had a different kind of passion.’ Smith said.

Police are investigating whether Brinsley is linked to the Black Guerrilla Family (BGF), a large-scale gang in Baltimore that has been responsible for masterminding criminal plots behind bars.
Leaders of the group compiled a ‘handbook’ that was distributed to members in Baltimore Correctional Center, the Washington Post reported.
