2 killed, off-duty officer hurt in love-triangle shootings

September 21, 2018

NEW YORK (AP) — Police say two people are dead and a third is seriously injured after in a possible love-triangle shooting in Queens.

Police say a woman called 911 just before 7 a.m. Friday and said, “I’ve been shot by my boyfriend.”

When officers got to the second-floor apartment they found a 31-year-old woman and a 47-year-old man, both fatally shot in the head.

Police say a third person, a 43-year-old off-duty Yonkers police officer, was shot in the shoulder and possibly stabbed in the back. He is undergoing surgery but is expected to survive.

Police believe the Yonkers officer is the dead woman’s boyfriend and the dead man was her ex-boyfriend.

They are investigating the possibility that the dead man shot the other two before turning the gun on himself.
