An East Point police officer killed by a gunshot to the head was allegedly killed by her former roommate, according to the police. Friends and family of the officer are saying the two women were girlfriends at one time.

Danielle Parker was arrested Tuesday in the killing of Cpl. Crystal Parker, a six-year veteran of the East Point Police Department who was named Officer of the Year in 2012.

No motive and no specifics about the relationship between the two women were given by police. Police did say the two women lived together at one time.
