Latino man arrested for plotting to kill white NYPD officers


Elvin Payamps, an immigrant from the Dominican Republic, was angry that the two murdered NYPD officers were an Asian and a Latino. He vowed to kill two white NYPD officers, but was arrested when a retired cop heard him bragging about the plot.

From New York Post…

A Queens man who wished the two assassinated city cops had been white was overheard vowing to make it right by drawing fresh NYPD blood — and he had the weapons to get it done, law-enforcement sources said Thursday.

“I’m going to kill another cop. We should do it before Christmas. The cop should have been white that was killed. I always have a gun on me,” Elvin Payamps allegedly blabbed over his cellphone.

After his arrest, Payamps, 38, allegedly confessed to the threat and said it was spurred by Saturday’s execution-style shootings of cops Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu in Brooklyn, sources said.

“They should have killed two white cops instead of the Hispanic and Asian if the guy really wanted to send a message,” Payamps allegedly said.

Payamps was overheard hatching the plan by Charles Otero, an ex-NYPD cop who happened to be in a TD Bank branch in Middle Village, Queens, as the killer wannabe flapped his gums at around 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, sources said.

Otero called 911, and cops raced to the scene, but Payamps — who a neighbor said lives two doors away from an active-duty NYPD cop — had already left.

His description was broadcast to police radios, and cops on patrol spotted Payamps getting in a car nearby, according to the NYPD.

During a subsequent stop, the cops spotted a bag of weed in the car and took Payamps into custody, the NYPD said.
