An afternoon-long hunt for a man who killed a police officer came to an end last night when officers found suspect Darrell Fuller in a car in Queens with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the shoulder.

The police officer, Arthur Lopez, 29, was fatally shot after pulling over a driver spotted leaving the scene of a traffic accident on the Cross Island Parkway in Queens today, police officials told Metro.

Fuller, who is in the hospital in guarded condition, is also accused of shooting and killing a passing motorist.

Nassau County police officials said Lopez pulled over Fuller’s car just after 11 a.m., near 241st Street and Jamaica Avenue, near the Belmont Park racetrack. When he approached the car, he allegedly shot Lopez in the chest before running over to another car where he shot and killed Brooklyn resident Raymond Facey, 52, at point-blank range before fleeing in the man’s vehicle, officials said. Lopez was not wearing a bulletproof vest.

Lopez, who lived in Babylon, N.Y., died at North Shore Long Island Jewish Hospital. He was an eight-year veteran of the force and a member of the department’s Emergency Services Unit.

Fuller spent five years in jail for attempted murder in 2004 and also was arrested for possession of a controlled substance in 2010, according to police.
