Cop Killer’s Mother: I’m Horrified


ishmael-brinsleyThe mother of Ismaaiyl Brinsley says when she heard sirens go off in her Brooklyn neighborhood while she was running errands Saturday, she immediately knew something had happened to her son.

“I saw the police cars. I saw the helicopters and instantly my mind went toward Ismaaiyl,” Shakuwra Dabre told DNAinfo.

Her 28-year-old son shot and killed two NYPD officers and then himself.

Dabre, who hasn’t spoken to her son since July, says she went to her computer to check the news and saw a photo of her son on a stretcher.

“I didn’t know about the police because I was so torn when I saw him on the stretcher,” she says. “I found out too that he did that and I was horrified.” Read more at DNAinfo.
