One of Eric Garner’s daughters has outraged New York police officers by sharing the address of another cop who was at the scene of her father’s chokehold death this summer.

At 1.45am on Thursday, Erica Garner tweeted that cop Justin D’Amico, who has previously been named in reports, was ‘another officer that helped killed my dad’, the New York Post reported.

She also shared a link that listed addresses for the officer and five possible relatives.

Ms Garner, who has more than 5,000 followers on Twitter, promptly deleted the tweet after inquiries from the Post, it reported.

Her message came nearly a week after two police officers, Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu, were shot dead in their patrol car in Brooklyn by Ismaaiyl Brinsley, who had claimed he was going to put ‘wings on pigs’ for the deaths of Garner and Ferguson teenager Michael Brown.

Police officers said they feared that D’Amico and his family could now be targeted because of the ‘disgusting’ tweet.
