New York City NY March 9 2017 An NYPD cop who was having a romance with a female lieutenant shot and killed himself inside a Brooklyn apartment Tuesday as the woman and her terrified parents were in the other room, sources said.
Officer Mike Smith was separated from his wife and having a relationship with the divorced fellow cop — but shot himself in the head while she was attempting to pack her clothes and move out, according to police sources.
The lovesick cop left behind a note that said: “I love you more than you will ever know.”
Smith, a community affairs officer from the 70th Precinct, was separated from his wife and staying in the apartment with his gal pal, sources said.
Next-door neighbor Andrey Savykin described the cop as a “nice, quiet” guy but said Smith seemed “depressed.”
Smith did not use his service weapon, but another gun he owned, sources said.
The cop had served on the force for at least 20 years and filed papers for retirement. His last day was scheduled to be March 25.
