Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Saturday night, who raged,“NO ONE gets to slam an SUV through a crowd of human beings.”(Obtained by Daily News). A disturbing cop confrontation with an angry crowd in Brooklyn protesting the fatal police arrest of a black Minnesota man drew the ire of progressive Rep.

But after darkness fell it soon became apparent that something horrific had happened in the house.

Patrol cars and armed gardaí swarmed the small cul-de-sac off Shanabooley Road. Word then filtered through that Brooklyn had been found dead in the house.

Sources say gardaí are trying to piece together the sequence of events that led to Brooklyn's violent death, but early indications are the man who was seen with Brooklyn either walked into Henry Street garda station in Limerick or alerted them by phone.

Immediately concerned for Brooklyn's welfare, gardaí sped to the scene just over a kilometre from the station, where they found the boy's body in the kitchen.
