Off-duty N.Y. officer found shot in head at home

By Associated Press

YONKERS, N.Y. — An off-duty New York City Police Officer was found shot dead in his Yonkers home last night. An investigator with the Westchester Medical Examiner's Office confirmed that 28-year-old Joseph John was pronounced dead at 11 p.m. Wednesday from a single gunshot wound to his head.

John was found in his Whitman Road home by Yonkers Police, who were called by family members in the house at the time.

Investigator Sean McDonnell says police are looking into whether John shot himself.

A spokesman for the New York Police Department said the NYPD would not issue any statements until Yonkers police conclude the investigation.
