Black Guerilla Family Gang Threatens NYPD Precinct

December 24, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

An undercover paid informant has provided New York Police Department with information suggesting the militant Black Guerilla Family Gang is planning an attack on an NYPD precinct. 

Police forces have responded by deploying barricades and body armor wearing officers outside of the 79th precinct. The 73rd precinct has also been threatened.

There is some debate whether the man who shot and killed two on-duty NYPD officers in Brooklyn on Saturday December 20, Ismaaiyl Brinsley, was a member of the Black Guerilla Family. 

The threats came in the early hours of December 24, while streets were filled with protesters in several regions of NYC. Mayor De Blasio asked protesters to wait until after the memorial service before continuing to exercise their 1st amendment rights, a request that went unheeded by thousands.
