An NYPD cop was captured on video saying “there’s one less a–hole to sue us” as he watched helicopter footage that shows a masked Brooklyn gunman dying after he was shot by officers.
In the black-and-white aerial video obtained by The Post, the suspect, identified by police as Bloods gang member Brandon Clayton, is seen on the ground in the back yard of a Brownsville home following a wild gun battle with police.
“Boom,” the officer who made the comments can be heard saying in the video.
That officer was recording the NYPD aviation footage of the incident from a screen when he made the comments, a police source said.
The video has been making its way around the police department, the source added.
