An off-duty officer with the Newark Police Department reportedly shot and killed his estranged wife, and badly wounded the woman's boyfriend on Saturday night.

According to NBC News, the officer—identified as 49-year-old Lieutenant John Formisano—reportedly opened fire on the pair at the woman's home in Jefferson Township and then fled the scene.

Formisano— a 24-year veteran of the force—was later captured in Livingston Township.

Two children were at that home when the shooting happened, but they were not wounded.
