EAST FLATBUSH, Brooklyn (PIX11) — An NYPD cop shot and killed her boyfriend and their 1-year-old son before taking her own life inside their Brooklyn home.

According to authorities, officers responded to the E. 56th apartment in East Flatbush after Rosette Samuel’s 19-year-old son called police.

Officers reportedly discovered the boyfriend’s body in a hallway while the 43-year-old cop and the infant were found lying in the couple’s bed.

The woman’s teen son is said to be the lone survivor, fleeing the apartment shortly after the shooting.

While the identities of the victims were not released, the New York Daily News reports that the police officer was a 13-year NYPD veteran and was assigned to the 108th Precinct.

    I could understand why some people would want to kill themselves but to take an innocent life with them is unacceptable.

    We need to be proactive and help people, friends, family members, co-workers whom we supspect are having emotional, financial, marital, relationship problems. They don't always speak up. They must know they can get help & that suicide & murders are not the answer. My grand-mother used to say: A bad night soon pass". Tomorrow may be brighter.

    There is a thin line between sanity and insanity. This woman son stated that his mother and boyfriend was arguing all night. He should have left the home knowing that she had a gun in her possession.

    There are all sorts of rumors about their relationship, Guyanese men are known for living home in the USA with a woman and secretly going to Guyana to marry another woman and then return to USA to reunite with the woman and leave her when the wife come up to the USA. I do not hope this is what happen because it would be a crying shame.
