An off-duty police officer shot to death her 1-year-old son and her boyfriend, who is believed to be the child’s father, before taking her own life in a Brooklyn home early Monday, authorities said.

The officer’s 19-year-old son managed to escape out a back window and find police; he was not injured.

Police responded to the home on East 56th Street in Flatbush after receiving reports of shots fired shortly before 8:30 a.m.

When authorities entered the first-floor apartment, they found the officer’s 33-year-old boyfriend dead in the doorway. The bodies of the 43-year-old officer, a 13-year cop with the 108th precinct, and the child were found in the bedroom.

All three victims died of gunshot wounds, authorities said.
