Sources cited by the Daily News said the woman was being treated for emotional problems and had her guns taken away from her. It was not immediately clear where she got the gun that she reportedly used to take her own life. The incident was the second suicide by an active NYPD member this year, after 10 active NYPD officers killed themselves last year—double the average annual number.
