NYPD officer, 31, ‘waits at home of ex and opens fire when she comes home with another woman’
A 31-year-old female NYPD cop waited in the home of her ex-girlfriend then, when she returned home with another woman, shot them both, seriously injuring the former girlfriend and killing her 24-year-old lover.
The officer, named by New York Daily News as Yvonne Wu, works for the NYPD’s 72nd precinct and has been a member of NYPD for five and a half years.
Assistant Chief Michael Kemper, of the Brooklyn South patrol district, refused to name the officer but said that she handed herself in when police arrived at the house and was ‘calm and collected and very forthcoming’.
Kemper said the officer shot the two women inside a home belonging to her 23-year-old girlfriend in Brooklyn, at 7901 19th Avenue, in Bensonhurst.
The incident happened at about 5pm on Wednesday, he said.
‘We believe the cop was inside the residence before the other two females came home,’ said Kemper.

One of the dead woman’s friends told The Daily News that Li and Wu lived together in Bay Ridge until about a month ago, when they broke up.
The New York Daily News reported that Wu on Wednesday was sitting on her ex-girlfriend’s bed waiting for them to return.
Wu’s 23-year-old girlfriend was found in the living room, shot in the torso but expected to survive.
The 24-year-old woman was found lying in the bedroom, having been shot in the chest ‘possibly more than once’. She died from her injuries.
