A Police officer shot to death in Florida.

A suspect has been taken into custody after allegedly fatally shooting a police officer in Tarpon Springs, Florida. The incident comes after a gunman killed two officers in New York City after issuing threats against law enforcement.

The shooting occurred early Sunday morning near the coastal town’s Sponge Docks, according to the sheriff’s office.
The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office and Tarpon Springs Police Department are investigating the incident.

Authorities have confirmed that both the victim and the suspect were male, but have not yet released any more information. A police news conference is planned for Sunday.

The killing comes on the heels of Saturday’s double police murder in New York. A 28-year-old African-American man shot and killed two police officers in Brooklyn before turning the gun on himself. The man had posted assassination threats, including pictures of the pistol he would use to kill the officers, on Instagram earlier that day.https://m.facebook.com/panafricanliberationmovement?_e_pi_=7%2CPAGE_ID10%2C9243412886
