Authorities say a woman was shot and killed inside a Queens home Saturday morning while two young children were there, and her husband, a former police officer, is being questioned as a suspect.
The woman was shot in the chest in a home on 101st Avenue and 104th Street in Ozone Park, according to officials, who said the shooting was believed to be tied to a domestic dispute.
The woman's husband, who retired from the NYPD about a year ago due to a disability from an accident, is being questioned as a suspect but has not been arrested or formally charged, law enforcement sources said.
Police haven't released the either the woman or husband's identity, but said both were in their 30s.
One neighbor said she saw the children run into a nearby deli screaming for help after the shooting.
"The kids were hysterical, forget about it," said Heidi Gamble.
