A police officer recently assigned to the 108th Precinct in Queens reportedly killed her boyfriend, their child and herself.

An off-duty police officer who was recently assigned to a Queens precinct shot her boyfriend and their one-year-old son before killing herself at their home in Brooklyn, according to published reports.

The officer, identified as Rosette M. Samuel, 43, had reportedly become part of the police force in September 2000 and was currently working at the 108th Precinct, which covers Long Island City, Sunnyside and Hunters Point.

According to reports, the body of Samuel’s boyfriend was found lying in the front hallway of the home, while Samuel and her child were found face up on a bed in a bedroom inside the family’s first- floor apartment home located on East 56th  Street in East Flatbush.

Samuel’s 19-year-old son from a previous relationship escaped through a bedroom window from the house  after hearing gunshots and called 911 at around 8:30 a.m., reported the New York Times.

According to the Daily News, cops did not find a suicide note at the scene.
