Two New York Police Department officers have been shot and killed while sitting in their cruiser. 

An armed man shot inside a patrol car Saturday afternoon, shooting both officers. The two officers were then rushed to a local hospital.  One officer was pronounced dead upon arrival and the other died after arriving at the medical center.

Police officials say the suspect shot the two officers -- fled into a subway tunnel and turned the weapon on himself.  According to reports the suspect is also dead. 

Mayor Bill de Blasio and Police Commissioner William Bratton were scheduled to hold a news conference from Woodhull Hospital at 7PM but that time has passed. 

Woodhull Hospital is the center the two officers were sent to for emergency services. 

The Thinkering will keep you updates as information is available.
