BREAKING: NYPD WARNED OF NEW THREAT – Suspect Questioned by DHS (Video)
Police warned of another suspect who may be on way to New York to kill police officers.
The suspect sent a threat via Instagram to NYPD officers Sunday afternoon.
FOX News reported:
The Office of Homeland Security and Memphis police questioned a suspect Sunday after the New York Police Department issued a warning to officers that a man was driving to New York from Tennessee to kill two more police officers, Fox News has learned.
Homeland Security questioned the suspect at his home and released him, according to an email from the Memphis Police Department in response to a FoxNews.com inquiry.
The initial warning, issued via a text message to NYPD officers Sunday afternoon, comes one day after a gunman ambushed and murdered two police officers — Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu — as they sat in their patrol car in Brooklyn. The gunman, Ismaaiyl Brinsley, 28, fled to a nearby subway station, where he shot himself in the head and later died.
The NYPD text alert, obtained by FoxNews.com, shows a photograph of a young man, and displays his name and birth date. Fox News is withholding the information pending confirmation by the NYPD.
