Two people were shot to death in what sources say appears to be an attempted murder-suicide in broad daylight in Ozone Park Thursday evening.
According to police, NYPD officers rushed to Drew Street and 101st Avenue, within the confines of the 102nd Precinct, at around 5:40 p.m. on Sept. 7. Upon their arrival, responding officers discovered a shocking, gruesome scene.
Police sources report that a 42-year-old woman and 46-year-man were discovered each with gunshot wounds to their heads, causing a bloody mess. Cops attempted to perform CPR at the scene until EMS rushed them to Jamaica Hospital where they were later pronounced dead.
Sources familiar with the investigation report that the pair were a couple who engaged in a dispute leading to what appears to be a very public murder-suicide. A handgun was recovered from the scene, according to sources familiar with the investigation. It is currently unclear who pulled the trigger.
A heavy police presence remained in the area for several hours as detectives investigate further.
