Police in New York on Monday named a 55-year-old man as a person of interest in the fatal shooting of a veteran civilian employee of the NYPD, who died in what is believed to be a domestic dispute.

Migdalia Ortega, 51, was shot in the head inside a Queens apartment building on Monday, with the gunman also wounding her neighbor, 48, twice in the torso when she rushed in to help. 

NYPD later issued a request for help in tracking down Pedro Cintron, who reports suggested was Ortega’s boyfriend.

They said he was ‘being sought for information in connection to an ongoing homicide investigation within the confines of the 104 Precinct.’ 

The gunman fled the scene in a car after both women were shot around 8:15am inside a third-floor residence on Fresh Pond Road in Ridgewood.

‘Preliminary investigation indicates that this began as a domestic incident between the 51-year-old female and a male in the third floor apartment,’ said NYPD Deputy Chief Julie Morrill, Commanding Officer Detective Bureau Queens. 

‘During the dispute, the 48-year-old second floor neighbor went to check on the third floor occupants. 

‘She was then shot and fled back to her apartment. The male suspect followed her and continued shooting.’

Both women were taken to a local hospital where Ortega was pronounced dead. 

The neighbor is in critical but stable condition.

She recently worked for the information technology bureau based at police headquarters in Manhattan.

Her daughter also worked with her at the NYPD, a colleague of the pair told The New York Post

Police Commissioner Keechant Sewell and other NYPD officials went to the hospital to meet with Ortega’s family. 

Police are still searching for the suspect.
