Cop apparently kills himself, the eighth NYPD suicide this year - WTH Is Going On?

An off-duty Bronx cop shot himself in the head at home Tuesday morning — the eighth NYPD officer to die by suicide this year, authorities said.

The 35-year-old officer, Johnny Rios, was a seven-year department veteran who had been temporarily assigned to a detail around Yankee Stadium, officials said.

He shot himself around 3 a.m. in the Yonkers home he shared with his fiancee and her children, law-enforcement sources said. The fiancee was home at the time, sources said. It is unclear if the kids were.

Rios left behind a note, sources said.

“The NYPD suffered another tragedy today with the loss of another officer to suicide,’’ the department said in a tweet. “To those who may be facing struggles – Help is always available, you are not alone.”

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.

I've heard that SSRI antidepressant use by cops has skyrocketed in recent years. That would help explain the quickdraw craziness of many, as well as the suicides.

"NEW YORK — Another NYPD officer has died by suicide - becoming the ninth to do so this year and the seventh since June 5th, officials said.

Robert Echeverría, 56, shot himself in the head at his Laurelton home in Queens just after 6 p.m. Wednesday. The 25-year veteran of the force, who was also a military veteran, was assigned to the Strategic Response Team."
