Police are monitoring social media for more threats after another individual who had allegedly threatened to drive to NYC and kill two cops was taken into custody for questioning, according to the New York Daily News.
Police were investigating at least one other Instagram threat that echoed words written by assassin Ismaaiyl Brinsley as he headed to Brooklyn on Saturday before he executed the officers and took his own life, sources say, adding it appears the man who made the threat is in custody in Memphis, Tenn., and is being grilled by cops there.
“Good job … Kill em all I’m on the way to NY now #shootthepolice 2 more going down tomorrow,” posted a user identified as woodgramflexinn.
The Instagram page was later taken down. Sources say it appears the man who made the threat is in custody in Memphis, Tenn., and is being grilled by police there.
In a memo to New York City detectives, their union president, Michael Palladino, said the killing of Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu as they sat in their patrol car outside a Bedford-Stuyvesant housing project was “an isolated incident.”
But, he added, “‘High Alert’ is an understatement. All of our Detectives must proceed with extreme caution while investigating your cases and engaging the public.
