The NYPD posted SWAT team members outside two precincts, and two were “swept by the bomb squad,” after bomb threats Wednesday.

CBS New York reported Wednesday night that bomb threats were called in against the 75th precinct in East New York and the 104th precinct in Queens. The bomb squad checked both precincts and cleared them.

Later Wednesday night, the Sergeants Benevolent Association tweeted news of two additional threats directed at two other precincts:

The “Black Guerilla Family” is a Baltimore-based gang, and “MOS” stands for Members of Service, i.e., NYPD officers. Because the threats from a confidential informant were judged credible, SWAT team members were posted outside the 79th and 81st precincts.

CBS New York reports that the NYPD had investigated at least a dozen threats against their officers since the shooting of Officer Ramos and Officer Liu on Saturday.
