Police say Calvello refused to put down his gun when officers arrived at the scene and was shot once in the torso.

Officers found 65-year-old Carolann Matyka in the kitchen of the Queens home with a gunshot wound to the head.

Calvello and Matyka were both pronounced dead at a hospital.

Investigators recovered a loaded 12-gauge shotgun from the scene. A dog was also shot.

It wasn’t immediately clear what sparked the incident.
