A Florida firefighter reportedly shot and killed a nurse who was sitting in a pickup truck and then turned the gun on himself.

Police entered a home in Titusville around 7 a.m. Thursday and found Haley Friedel, 24, dead in her blue truck with gunshot wounds.

Gregory DePietro, 32, of the Seminole County Fire Department, was found nearby in critical condition with what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The firefighter was taken to a nearby hospital and pronounced dead three hours later.

According to the New York Post, Friedel was an emergency room nurse, according to a Facebook page believed to be linked to her.

DePietro and Friedel knew each other, but investigators didn’t say what their relationship was like.

The firefighter parked his vehicle directly behind Friedel’s truck and, according to the initial findings of the investigation, approached the driver’s side, which was locked.

“Then he fired several shots into the driver’s side window and hit Friedel several times, then immediately pointed the gun at himself and shot,” police said on Friday.

The motive for the shooting was not immediately determined.

DePietro joined the fire department in October 2018. He worked in a team focused on hazardous material handling and technical rescues. He had “a good reputation with the department during his tenure,” Seminole County officials said.

“This is a tragic and devastating loss for Haley Friedel’s family and Greg DePietro’s family,” officials said.

The incident came four days after 35-year-old New York City Police Officer Sean Armstead called in sick to work his midnight shift and followed his wife and their illicit younger lover to an upstate hotel. Armstead was chasing his wife’s lover, Edward Wilkins, 20, down a freeway and crashed into his vehicle.

As Wilkins ran out of his car, Armstead shot him in the back of the head and then himself. Armstead’s wife, Alexandra Vanderheyden, 35, later said she believes her husband followed her on her cell phone.
