NEW YORK — An off-duty police officer gunned down his wife on a Queens street last night before turning the weapon on himself, all because she didn't cook dinner, according to law ­enforcement sources.

Sherlon Smikle, 33, chased his wife, an NYPD school-safety agent, down the block outside their St. ­Albans home at about 7 p.m., then blasted her four times with a shotgun, the sources said. Her name was not immediately released.
