A veteran civilian employee of the NYPD was shot and killed inside a Queens apartment building Monday, allegedly by her boyfriend, who police say also wounded her neighbor when she rushed in to help. 

A manhunt is now underway for the gunman, 55, who fled the scene in a car after both women were shot around 8:15 a.m. inside a third-floor residence on Fresh Pond Road in Ridgewood, Queens. Neither the NYPD worker killed nor the woman injured have been named. 

Police say the suspect shot his girlfriend, 51, who is a civilian employee of the NYPD, in the head during a domestic dispute Monday morning. 

The woman’s 48-year-old neighbor heard the commotion, rushed upstairs and was also shot when she tried to intervene. The suspect went after the woman and shot twice in the torso, police said. 

The victims’ names have not been released.
