Mass. police officer fatally shot by CO

Cop was responding to a domestic violence call when he was fatally shot by a New York City correction officer

The Associated Press

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. — Authorities say a western Massachusetts police officer responding to a domestic violence call has been fatally shot by a New York City correction officer who critically wounded his former girlfriend before killing himself.

Police say Officer Kevin Ambrose went to the woman's Springfield apartment Monday after she called 911 to say her ex-boyfriend was nearby and she feared for her life.

Springfield police say Hempstead, N.Y., resident Shawn Bryan shot the officer through the door of his ex-girlfriend's apartment, shot the girlfriend and then shot himself outside in a car.

Bryan had worked at the Rikers Island correctional facility. His ex-girlfriend is hospitalized in critical condition. She had obtained a restraining order against him 45 minutes before the shootings.

The New York City Department of Correction says it's "shocked and saddened" by what happened.
