DETROIT -- An off-duty police officer died Friday afternoon from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, Police Chief Ella Bully-Cummings said.

The shooting took place outside a vehicle shortly after 11 a.m., police said. Officer Tabitha McCree was taken by police car to Detroit Receiving Hospital, where she underwent surgery, police said.

"Right now, based upon the investigation and the preliminary information we have, it appears as though it is a self-inflicted wound," Bully-Cummings said. "The matter is under investigation."

McCree was married to another Detroit police officer and had children, Bully-Cummings said. She had been with the department for a little more than five years, the chief said.
