An off-duty Bronx cop apparently killed himself Tuesday morning in Yonkers, the eighth NYPD cop to die by suicide this year, officials told The Post.
The 35-year-old officer, who worked in the Bronx, died of self-inflicted injuries around 3 a.m. in Yonkers, police officials and sources said. He had seven years on the job.
Law enforcement sources said the victim left behind a note.
The NYPD offers counseling with the Employee Assistance Unit and the Chaplains Unit and also encourages the use of Police Officers Providing Peer Assistance, which is separate from the department.
