Oh my god.
A NYPD officer was shot and killed in an unprovoked attack at a police mobile command post in the Bronx overnight:

Other officers on the scene shot and killed the gunman. From the NY Daily News:
The slain officer was identified as Miosotis Familia, 48, a 12-year veteran of the police force. She was assigned to the 46th Precinct.
Two cops gunned down the alleged assailant — later identified as Alexander Bonds — after he blasted the mobile command post parked near E. 183rd St. and Creston Ave. around 12:30 a.m., according to police sources and Commissioner James O’Neill.
Surveillance footage shows the suspected 34-year-old shooter marching toward the command post “with purpose,” the source said.
NYPD Commissioner James P. O’Neill called the attack an assassination:
