Double cop killer admitted having mental health issues, court records reveal – as NYPD goes on high alert over copycat attacks

A twisted gunman who ambushed two NYPD officers and shot them dead ‘execution style’ suffered from mental health issues, according to old court documents.

Ismaaiyl Brinsley, 28, killed himself yesterday after a rampage in which he gunned down officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu as they sat in a patrol car in Brooklyn.

Earlier that day Brinsley – who started the day by shooting a former girlfriend- boasted of his intentions with sick social media posts claiming he was avenging Eric Garner and Michael Brown.

He has been linked with crime before, and has an arrest history in Georgia for robbery, disorderly conduct and carrying a concealed weapon. He is believed to have served time in jail…

No surprise there.
