A Philadelphia police officer with a history of stalking and harassing his former lovers fatally shot his ex-girlfriend and wounded her daughter on Monday, police said.
WCAU reported that Colwyn Borough Police Department identified 32-year-old Stephen Rozniakowski as the man who opened fire on both women in a Delaware County home. Neighbors identified the ex-girlfriend as Valerie Morrow.
Morrow’s teenage daughter reportedly was also shot, but her injuries were not life threatening.
According to investigators, the victim had recently filed a protection order against Rozniakowski, but the two had not dated for years.
Rozniakowski called the Colwyn Borough Police Department just before the shooting to notify them that he was resigning, investigators noted. He had been served the protection from abuse (PFA) order that same evening.
Reports said that a second off-duty officer, who was thought to be Morrow’s husband, was also in the home when the shooting occurred, and he shot Rozniakowski.
The suspect was taken to Crozer-Chester Medical Center for treatment. His condition was not immediately available.
The Delaware County Daily Times pointed out that Rozniakowski may have been wearing body armor when he was shot.
Rozniakowski was charged with 25 counts of stalking and 50 counts of harassment in a case earlier this year involving his former fiancee, who had also taken out a protection order against him. His service weapon was taken away at that time, and he was placed on administrative leave, the department said.
Rozniakowski was due in court on Thursday for a pre-trail conference on the 75 counts of stalking and harassment.

‘Trump should know how to be in public with a woman who publicly humiliated him’: Trevor Noah jokes
"The Daily Show's" Trevor Noah couldn't help but notice President Donald Trump's confusion during the Q&A of his daily coronavirus press briefing. Trump was asked about Vice President Joe Biden's pick as Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) as his running mate. In his attacks on Harris, Trump seemed to be spending more time defending Biden than he did attacking him.
Trump claimed the reason he was surprised Biden picked Harris is that she was "very very nasty to Joe Biden," he said she was "probably nastier even than Pocahontas," his nickname for Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA). "She was very disrespectful to Joe Biden."
Mike Pence tries to brag about creating a record number of jobs — but it was after losing all of those jobs in the first place
Vice President Mike Pence appeared on Fox News Wednesday to brag about the Trump administration creating more jobs in the United States than any other president in history, including former President Barack Obama and Joe Biden. The problem, obviously, is that they lost all of those jobs in the first place.
Due to the coronavirus crisis and the mismanagement that surrounded it, the United States reached 14.7 percent unemployment, with jobless claims surpassing 40 million Americans. It's a record worst unemployment rate since the Great Depression and set an all-time record for the most Americans out of work in history. During the Great Depression, 23 million Americans were out of work.
Side-by-side video exposes Trump as he reads the exact same script at multiple press briefings
If President Donald Trump sounds like he's mindlessly rattling off random facts and figures on a monotone voice while reading another script that sounds like the same script before, there's a reason for that. The scripts have been almost identical on multiple occasions.
The Recount showed a mash-up of several different videos of Trump reading the exact same words about the COVID-19 pandemic and the United States "conducting more tests than any other country in the world." He also cites the exact same phrase for talking about the elderly dying of the coronavirus and how they can fast-track the vaccine for 100 million of the 330 million Americans in the United States.
