Shithead New York correction officer kills Massachusetts cop, shoots ex and kills himself

A Rikers Island officer stalked his terrified ex-girlfriend to Massachusetts, where he shot her in the head, executed a veteran cop and then committed suicide.

Shawn Bryan's 1-year-old daughter was in the Springfield, Mass., apartment during Monday afternoon's explosion of violence but she was not hurt.

The murder-suicide unfolded after Bryan's ex, Charlene Mitchell, 29, went to court Monday and took out an order of protection against him.

"He is a demon," she wrote in her application, saying he was physically abusive before they broke up last July, according to the Springfield Republican.

She said he was supposed to pick up a TV from her family over the weekend but didn't show and instead barraged her with text messages, including one that said; "I'm going to make you wish you were not born."

The judge ordered him to stay away from her, but at 1 p.m. Mitchell called 911 to say Bryan was on the way to the house and she feared for her life, police said.

Springfield Police Officer Kevin Ambrose arrived at the scene to find Mitchell, 29, and Bryan outside. After a conversation, all three made their way up to the third-floor apartment.

Suddenly, Bryan, 34, pushed Mitchell inside and shut the door. Using his registered 9mm semiautomatic, he fired at Ambrose through the door, then opened it and fired at the cop again, police said.

Bryan then turned the gun on Mitchell and shot her in the head, critically wounded her. He ran out to his car, where he fatally shot himself in the chest.

When backup arrived, the officers found Ambrose on the floor in the hallway and began pumping his chest, but the 36-year veteran died at Baystate Medical Center.

Mitchell was fighting for her life after surgery at the same hospital. Her 1-year-old daughter with Bryan was in the custody of child welfare authorities.

Bryan had been a correction officer since August 2009. He last worked at Rikers on Saturday and was scheduled to return to his post on Tuesday.

Mitchell described him as mentally unstable and domineering.

"He had always told me that he is crazy and that his head is not good," she wrote in her application for the order of protection.

He was licensed to carry his weapon in New York but was supposed to surrender it to Massachusetts authorities after the order of protection was issued.

"We are shocked and saddened by today's events. Each of us takes an oath of office to preserve and protect the lives of others," Corrections Commissioner Dora Schriro said in a statement.

"This is an unspeakable tragedy. We express our heartfelt condolences to the family of Springfield Police Officer Kevin Ambrose, his fellow officers in the Springfield Police Department and the City of Springfield."

Ambrose, 56, was married with two grown children and one grandchild. His brother is a police sergeant.

"Officer Kevin Ambrose was a great police officer. He will be sadly missed by his fellow officers," said Springfield Sgt. John Delaney. "I have known him since I became a police officer.

"When speaking to him recently about retirement he said, 'Why leave? I love my job,'" Delaney said. "He is someone that I always looked up to."

Everyone. is wrong that's why they want to kill you!

Everyone is equal but some are more equal than others.

I like how ALL the jail guard comments are anonymous! Cowards... I'm a New york city Corrections OFFICER, that is my job title, I have never been, nor will I ever be a jail guard... These events are tragic, an my condolences go out to the families involved. But the actions of one sick individual should not represent every person wearing that uniform. RESPECT A PROFESSION YOU YOURSELF COULD NOT AND WOULD NOT HAVE THE COURAGE TO PERFORM...

Retired NYC Correction Officer said...

I am also a retired NYC Correction Officer and I agree with D.Scarbrough when he stated that all of the anonymous posts are cowards!!! This is a horrific incident that should have never happened. To paint all Correction Officers with the same brush is unfair. Walk a day in our shoes and tell me if you could have the balls to do our job!! As far as race goes would this incident be any better if the person was white or a Police Officer. And for the record we NEVER refer to ourselves as Cops or Jail Guards!!!!

CCDOC now thats where jail guards are formed....Police you could keep on calling yourself and give youself the honor of saying IM THE POLICE. But why so much hatred on jail guards. I myself and most at the compound deal with the same animals you CPD deal with except we have to be locked up in there. Ive been through it all.. So before you look down at the jail guards... Put yourself in our shoes..keep your cpd job. I know you wouldnt last two weeks in there...asshole

The real racist always let themselves be known... Here a man with a family, out doing his job, and gunned down by another law enforcement Officer idiot, and all you wanted to know if it was the "N" word. Dont disrespect our fallen brother with ignorance. Race did not play a roll in any kind of actions this veteran Officer took. The man who took his life went from uniform to perp, to coward. His punishment was death. All theses negative posts cast the wrong image on our department, and I' hate to find out that it's someone I'm out on patrol with. The City of NY did not commit a crime the perp did. Rest in peace brother Ambrose..

Man your right... But I know many officers from CCDOC that I worked with that were great C/o's and go on to be the police and they move up quickly to specialized units rather than the COLLEGE kids. My hat goes out to the police but I wouldnt work in the jail with 75% of those so called police... The sad thing is the real Police Officers with time on the job and have been through hell and back agree that these kids are a bunch of freakin idiots.
