Police say an off-duty NYPD officer shot and killed her baby son and the baby's father in Brooklyn Monday, before turning the gun on herself.
Police responded to the scene after reports of gunfire, NBC reports. After a brief standoff, the cop then murdered her one-year-old son and the child's father before taking her own life.
The cop was 43-years-old, had been in the police force since 2000, and worked in 108th precinct in Brooklyn, said NYPD spokesman Paul Browne.
Police say the 19-year-old son of the cop from a previous marriage escaped out a back window during the shooting before calling 911.
