Police Commissioner William Bratton spoke Saturday at a news conference with Mayor Bill de Blasio. He identified the two officers killed in Brooklyn as Wenjin Liu and Raphael Ramos, adding that they were shot without warning or provocation.

Bratton also said the suspect shot his ex-girlfriend earlier Saturday in Baltimore.

De Blasio said the two officers are heroes.

The police officers were killed in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood. Authorities say the gunman ran inside a subway station and fatally shot himself in the head.
