By Thomas Tracy New York Daily News NEW YORK — Another NYPD cop took his own life early Tuesday, shooting himself inside his Yonkers home, sources said. The off-duty seven-year veteran of the department left a note when he shot himself in the head about 3:30 a.m., sources said. His fiancee was in the home when he shot himself. He died at the scene. He is the eighth NYPD cop to take his own life this year. Four officers killed themselves just last month.
