Cops across the city have been warned of a possible plot by the Latin Kings gang to shoot officers at a specific Bronx intersection in the coming weeks, according to police sources.
The department named seven believed associates of the notorious gang who were possibly planning to ambush cops at W. Farms Road and E. Tremont Ave. in Castle Hill during the week of Jan. 19, according to the NYPD’s intelligence bureau, which transmitted the threat to all posts and commands on Sunday.
An informant reported the alleged plot to cops, but the threat had not yet been verified, according to the memo, which nevertheless urged rank and file cops to use extreme caution when interacting with the men.
At least two of the potential threat-makers have served time in state prison on charges of attempted robbery and weapons possession, according to public records.
