Editor's note: There is conflicting information circulating about the status of the NYPD officers shot in Brooklyn, NY, today. The New York Times, citing authorities, is reporting that one of the officers is dead and the other critical. The New York Post and CBS New York, citing a city councilman, say both officers are dead. I'm waiting for firm confirmation from the NYPD or hospital officials on both officers' conditions. - Aaron
