NYPD officer Yvonne Wu was charged Thursday night with murder and attempted murder for allegedly shooting his ex-girlfriend and killing the woman’s new lover in a fit of jealous rage, police said.
The 31-year-old and five-year-old force veteran took a photo Wednesday night and allegedly performed the double shot at her ex-girlfriend Jenny Li’s Brooklyn home.
Wu, who works in Sunset Park’s 72nd Ward, waited at home for hours until her ex showed up at 5 p.m. with 24-year-old new sweetheart, Jamie Liang.
After allegedly shooting the two women, Wu left the house and confessed to the murders, police and a high-ranking source said.

Li, 23, was found in a room at the house with a gunshot wound to his chest. Liang, shot in the chest at least once, was discovered on the living room floor, police said.
Both women were hospitalized. Liang could not be saved and Li is expected to recover, authorities said.
The alleged killer police officer may have argued with Liang in the days leading up to the bloodshed, a source said.

On Thursday night, Wu was staying at NYU Langone Hospital in Brooklyn, where she was undergoing an assessment.
