A New Jersey man reportedly turned himself in to police Sunday after allegedly shooting an off-duty NYPD detective with his own service weapon.
The New York Post reports Robert Dunbar, 35, shot Detective Louis Pepe twice in the same shoulder inside a New Jersey home on Friday night.
Sources tell the Post that Dunbar became violent after walking in on his estranged wife and Pepe in a compromising position.
A fight broke out and that is when Dunbar apparently reached for the 38-caliber revolver and opened fire.
Pepe, who lives on Staten Island, was treated at a hospital and released.
The NYPD says Pepe is a 16-year veteran who works in Brooklyn.
The Post says Dunbar faces charges of attempted murder, aggravated assault and criminal possession of a weapon.
