A New York City man has been arrested after he allegedly fatally shot his girlfriend and then threatened to “shoot everyone in the house” before starting a two-hour SWAT standoff, according to authorities.
Around 3 a.m. on May 7, officers say 48-year-old Peter Hibbert allegedly shot his 49-year-old girlfriend, Jacqueline Wilson, in the head, torso, arm and leg inside their home in Brownsville, Brooklyn, police said.
After a two-hour standoff with SWAT teams, officers found Hibbert hiding in a crawl space under the Brownsville home’s garden, police said.
Wilson lived with her boyfriend, 29-year-old daughter and her baby, officials said. The daughter’s boyfriend was over at the time of the incident and one witness said they called him when he saw police aiming at the home.
“I ask, ‘What’s going on in your house?!” the neighbor said, The Post reported. “He say, ‘Shhhhhh, I call you back.’ They’d locked themselves in the bedroom with the baby."
