A school safety officer with the New York City police was shot dead in her apartment, allegedly by her boyfriend, in an apparent murder-suicide, according to authorities.

Officers responded to reports of an argument and gunshots inside a Fort Greene, Brooklyn, apartment around 11:20 p.m. Sunday, initially treating the call as a possibly armed and barricaded person, according to the New York Police Department (NYPD).

When officers went inside, they found 44-year-old Naire McCormick, an NYPD school safety agent, in her bedroom, shot in the head, police said.

A 47-year-old man was also found dead in the bedroom with a gunshot wound to the head, police said, and a gun was recovered at the scene.

“Today is a sad day as we mourn the death of our beloved School Safety Agent Naire McCormick,” officials with the NYPD’s school safety department wrote on Twitter Monday. “She will be deeply missed by her friends, family, the youth & faculty she served at her school and her NYPD School Safety Family.”
