The man who ambushed a New York officer in a parked police vehicle earlier this week, gunning her down with a shot to the head, had been acting erratically in recent weeks and was “paranoid the police were following him,” an official said Thursday. The recent killings of law enforcement officers mark an uptick in line-of-duty deaths. Familia is among 24 officers fatally shot this year, up from 22 at the same point in 2016, according to the National Law Enforcement Memorial Fund, a nonprofit that tracks line-of-duty deaths.
