Police say a man shot himself after he crashed his car outside the New York City Police Department's 81st Precinct station house Friday afternoon.

According to police, a woman filed a report against her ex-boyfriend early Friday morning after a domestic incident.

Domestic violence police officers then went to the woman's home at approximately 3 p.m. Friday.

Police say that the boyfriend made a call to the home and found out from his ex-girlfriend about the police investigation.

The 32-year-old man then said he wanted to hurt himself and headed for the 81st Precinct station house, according to police.

The man drove his Lexus SUV the parking lot of the station house at a high rate of speed, according to police, and crashed his car into an unmarked empty police vehicle.

The unmarked police vehicle then slammed into the wall of the precinct, according to police.

Police say that three officers were forced to jump out of the way to avoid being hit by the car.

The man shot himself under the chin after the crash, according to police.

He is in critical condition at Kings County Hospital.

Two guns were found inside his car, according to police.

Police say there were no injuries to police department personnel or civilians.

There is no word yet on any possible charges stemming from the incident.
