The new video shows the chaos triggered when police say a condescending lover snapped.
“It’s been two shots and in all the years I’ve lived here, I’ve never seen anything like it in my life,” neighbor Pat Santi said.
Cell phone video shows Wu being sought by other police officers Wednesday evening.
According to detectives, Wu was on leave when he allegedly shot and injured his ex-girlfriend and killed his ex-girlfriend’s new girlfriend, 24-year-old Jamie Liang. Numerous 911 calls came in, which reported shootings inside a house on the corner of 19th and 79th Streets in Bensonhurst. Brooklyn Around 17:00 on Wednesday.
The deadly encounter makes society tense. “I can’t believe it. It’s terrible,” one woman told Moore.
WCBS-TV learned that Wu and her ex broke up last month. “I always saw them together,” said neighbor Jeanette Vargas. “Just like everyone else, you can come home and find your girlfriend or someone else and you blow up. So I don’t think it has anything to do with him being a police officer.”
“How many breakups have you had in your life? Are you going to go and kill the man? You want, but you don’t take 9mm and pull them out,” added Santi.
Valerie Wades said that paramedics watched as they tried desperately but unsuccessfully to save Liang. “Ambulances came and took the two victims out and they were doing crazy chest compressions,” Wades said.
Police sources told WCBS-TV’s John Dias that the fatal encounter may have been premeditated. Sources said that Wu was waiting at the house of his ex-girlfriend, whom he once shared. When Wu returned with Liang, he allegedly fired multiple bullets.
“It’s a very good chance it’s a service weapon,” said NYPD Deputy Chief Michael Kemper. “A 24-year-old woman was found lying in the living room, and the second woman, 23-year-old, was found lying on the bedroom floor.”
Police said Wu immediately admitted to shooting. “I would describe him as calm, collective, and very close,” Kemper said.
“Never in a million years did I think it was a cop who shot. It just looked so disconnected. Everyone else was hyperdriving and he was so calm,” said Wades.
Police said Wu’s ex-girlfriend is in stable condition, but her injuries are serious.
Sources said Wu and her ex were in touch, but their post-relationship communications were “conflicting”.
