NEW YORK - A uniformed NYPD cop angry over his girlfriend's Facebook postings - and scared she'd leave him - fatally shot himself right in front of the woman on a Manhattan street yesterday, police said.

"I love you," Officer Philip Chlanda, 29, told the woman before shooting himself in the head with his department-issued Glock at around 3 a.m. outside the Murray Hill apartment they shared with his parents, cops said.
