Police say two people are dead and a third is seriously injured after in a possible love-triangle shooting in Flushing.

Police say a woman called 911 just before 7 a.m. Friday and said, "I've been shot by my boyfriend." The shooting occurred in a second-floor apartment on 77th Street near 19th Road in Flushing, the New York Post reported.

When officers got to the apartment they found a 31-year-old woman and a 47-year-old man both fatally shot in the head.

A 43-year-old off-duty Yonkers police officer, was shot in the shoulder and possibly stabbed in the back. He is undergoing surgery but is expected to survive, authorities say.

Police believe the Yonkers officer is the dead woman's boyfriend and the dead man was her ex-boyfriend.

They are investigating the possibility that the dead man shot the other two before turning the gun on himself.
