The incident was reported Wednesday night just after 5 p.m. at a home in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn.
Police say the 31-year-old off-duty officer shot and killed a 24-year-old woman and shot a 23-year-old woman who is expected to survive.
The off-duty officer was inside the home before the two women arrived.
Police believe that the NYPD officer was having an “intimate relationship” with the 23-year-old woman.
The officer has been with the department for 5 and a half years. Sources tell Eyewitness News she was with the 72 Precinct.
The home where the incident happened belongs to the 23-year-old woman, but sources say the officer did not live with the 23-year-old woman.
The off-duty officer was taken into custody and taken to a hospital for an evaluation.
It was not yet clear if the weapon used was the officer’s service weapon.
Police said she was calm and very forthcoming when they arrived at the scene.
Few other details were released.
