Tragedy struck over the July 4th holiday weekend as an unnamed 53 year old MTA security officer committed suicide. Here is more in a brief report by Joe Kemp & Thomas Tracy of the New York Daily News:
An MTA security guard took her own life inside a Brooklyn subway station Saturday, police sources said.
The 53-year-old woman was assigned to protect a crew of workers maintaining MetroCard kiosks at the Flatbush Ave.- Brooklyn College station about 1 p.m. when she excused herself and went into a staff bathroom, according to sources.
Once inside, she pulled her service weapon and shot herself in the head, sources said.
No commuters witnessed the shooting, police sources said.
Calls to the MTA were not returned.
It is always unfortunate to find out that something could have led to a person making the choice to end their life. My condolences to the loved ones of this woman.
