Lana Morris died Wednesday, June 5, 2013 in Queens, New York. Police say she was gunned down on the street near her home by her 33 year-old husband, a NYPD officer, because she wouldn't cook dinner after returning home late from work as a school safety officer.
They say that after he killed her, he returned to their home and shot himself in the head. Sources say that in May, after a domestic dispute involving Lana, the NYPD had taken her husband's police-issued weapon and he was ordered to turn over all guns in his home due concerns about his behavior, but he was not charged with a crime because Lana was not seriously injured.
They say he was, instead, given a "do not harass" order telling him to behave himself. Lana is survived by a daughter.
