NYPD cop fatally shoots self inside NYC apartment

An NYPD cop fatally shot himself inside his Manhattan apartment on Wednesday, sources said.

The officer, 34, was discovered by police inside his Stuyvesant Town apartment at about 7:15 p.m. after he failed to show up for work, according to sources.

He was found lying face down on his bed, sources said, and there was a gun beside him.

The cop joined the department in 2013.

He was stationed out of Times Square and would normally start his shift at 6 p.m., sources said.

His suicide is the second within NYPD ranks this month.

On April 5, Deputy Inspector Denis Mullaney shot himself in the head inside a department vehicle in Queens.
