NYPD officer Sherlon Smikle, who had a reported history of domestic violence, shot and killed his wife Lana Morris, a mother and NYPD Safety Officer for Queen's Village public school, as she ran from their home. He then shot and killed himself. His duty weapon had already been confiscated due to reported domestic violence. He used a shotgun to commit his final crime. An eight year old little girl is left behind. May she be surrounded with love on every side, and angels. Blessings of strength to the families and friends.
There's no pics of Lana so I'm not posting pics of Sherlon. This double death was in the paper a few days and then all fell silent. What will ever be NEW at NYPD? How many deaths does it take 'til NYPD knows?
