Retired White Plains Police Officer Said to Kill 2 Daughters and Himself


A retired police officer in White Plains shot and killed two of his children on Saturday before committing suicide, according to a local newspaper.

Glen Hochman, 52, and two of his daughters, Alissa, 17, and Deanna, 13, were found at their Adelphi Avenue home early Saturday, according to the newspaper, The Journal News.

“The department is shocked and horrified by the news of this unfathomable tragedy,” David Chong, the commissioner of the White Plains Department of Public Safety, said in a statement to the newspaper.

Mr. Hochman was a police officer for the city of White Plains for 22 years, according to the statement.

In a statement posted on the Harrison Central School District’s website, Louis N. Wool, the superintendent of schools, called the shooting an “incomprehensible tragedy.”

In May 2014, Mr. Hochman was a recipient, along with other officers, of the Lifesaving Award through the public safety department.

The killings were first reported by News 12 in Westchester County.
