The mother of the gunman who killed two NYPD police officers on Saturday extended her deepest condolences to their families on Monday.

From New York Daily News:

“I am still deeply sorry about what happened at the hands of my son,” said Shakuwra Dabre, 54, of Brooklyn. “And please accept my deepest condolences, sincerely. As a mother now I hurt for the loss of my son. Just like they’re hurting for the loss of their sons.”

Dabre said she was shocked when she went online and saw a photo of her son Ismaaiyl Brinsley, 28, lying on a gurney Saturday after the shooting.

“I pulled out my laptop and I went online and I saw his body and I knew he was dead when I looked at it,” Dabre told the Daily News.

“I knew when I saw it. He was gone. I knew it was my son. And that’s how I found out.”

Brinsley had posted a threat to police officers on Instagram before killing the officers around 2:45 p.m. outside the Tomkins Houses in Bedford-Stuyvesant.

He shot his ex-girlfriend, Shaneka Thompson, shortly before killing the officers. Thompson is fighting for her life.

Sad sad news.
