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.

Lev Parnas’s lawyer declared ‘open war’ on AG Bill Barr during Maddow interview: attorney
The attorney for Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas appears to be using a novel legal strategy, attorney Luppe Luppen explained on Friday.
Joseph Bondy, the attorney for Parnas, was interviewed Friday evening by Rachel Maddow, following the day's end of the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.
Luppen, who offers legal analysis on his popular @nycsouthpaw Twitter account, came to a conclusion that seemed to surprise him after watching the interview.
"I’ve never seen a lawyer sit on a cable panel show and make that much news," Luppen wrote.
Maddow breaks down the evidence against Mike Pompeo: ‘How is he still Secretary of State?’
MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow was shocked that Mike Pompeo remains Secretary of State despite all of the damning evidence that has emerged about his role in the Ukraine scandal for which President Donald Trump was impeached.
"Remember there's this thing with this guy Dmytro Firtash? So this Ukrainian oligarch who is charged with serious bribery charges in the United States, he's fighting extradition -- all the money in the world, the Kremlin's man in Ukraine, the prosecutors say he's an upper-echelon associate of Russian organized crimes," Maddow noted. "What is he doing in this story anyway?"
LISTEN: ‘Take her out’ tape released an hour after House ended opening arguments in Trump’s impeachment trial
Late on Friday night, ABC News released an audio recording reportedly documenting President Donald Trump ordering associates to "take out" then-Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch.
"A recording obtained by ABC News appears to capture President Donald Trump telling associates he wanted the then-U.S. ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch fired while speaking at a small gathering that included Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman -- two former business associates of Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani who have since been indicted in New York," ABC News reported.
"The recording appears to contradict statements by Trump and support the narrative that has been offered by Parnas during broadcast interviews in recent days. Sources familiar with the recording said the recording was made during an intimate April 30, 2018, dinner at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C.," the network said.
