We perish because we know not… #TLENews
A retired New York police officer killed two of his children Saturday before taking his own life, authorities said.
Glen Hochman, 52, of Harrison, New York, who recently retired from the police force, killed himself after killing his daughters, Alyssa and Deanna, they said.
“The White Plains Police Department is shocked and horrified by the news of this tragic event,” said David Chong, White Plains public safety commissioner. “We can only pray for the Hochman family.”
Hochman served the department for more than 22 years “with integrity,” he said. He received a lifesaving award from the department last year, according to the public safety website.
Allysa Hochman, a senior at Harrison High School, and her younger sister were victims of an “incomprehensible tragedy,” according to a statement released by Superintendent of Schools Louis N. Wool.
He added that the school would open at noon and have grief counseling available for students and staff.
Further details were unavailable.
