Authorities say a 5-year veteran for the New York Police Department has been arrested for allegedly shooting her ex-girlfriend and killing another woman inside a residence in Brooklyn.
During a press conference, Assistant Chief Michael Kemper said officers received multiple calls about a shooting at a residence at approximately 5 p.m. Friday.
After officers arrived at the scene, they were met by a woman who said she shot someone inside the residence.
Once they gained entry into the residence, officers found a 24-year-old woman shot in the living room and a 23-year-old woman shot in the bedroom.
Kemper said the 23-year-old and the suspect had previously been in a relationship.
According to Kemper, the 24-year-old woman was shot in the chest, possibly more than once, and the 23-year-old victim was shot in the torso.
They were both transported to a nearby hospital, where at 5:54 p.m., the 24-year-old victim was pronounced dead.
The 23-year-old was expected to survive, police said.
Kemper told reporters the suspect is a 31-year-old police officer who worked at the Brooklyn South precinct.
According to Kemper, it's initially believed that the suspect was waiting inside the residence before the two victims got home.
