Parole Officer Shoots Self

By Howard Schwach

A Wavecrest parole officer shot himself in the chest on Tuesday night, sending him to Jamaica Hospital, police say.

Sources say that Nathaniel Morgan, 50, of 20-29 Seagirt Boulevard in the Wavecrest Gardens complex fired one shot into his chest at about 11 p.m. on December 27, dealing himself a nonfatal wound.

He was transported to Jamaica Hospital Trauma Center, where he reportedly remains in stable condition.

Detectives from the 101 Precinct in Far Rockaway are investigating, and police sources say that so far they have no motive for the self-inflicted wound.

Anybody with information on the shooting should contact the detective squad at 718-868-3429.
