Hours after July Fourth celebrations had ended in NYC, an officer was executed while sitting inside her police cruiser.
The Bronx is apparently going back to those bad days of violence. The northernmost of NYC's five boroughs has had it's up and downs, but most recently has seen a spike in murder by shootings.
A member of the NYPD was shot to death early Wednesday morning after being ambushed in a marked patrol car by a man with a revolver who was later killed by police officers.
