Man, two women shot to death in Bronx apartment

A former MTA worker gunned down his bus-driver wife and her 29-year-old daughter before shooting himself in the head Wednesday — all while the young*er woman’s baby was sleeping in an *adjoining room, cops said.

Jorge Vega, 52, fatally shot mom-of-three Susan Trivino, 54, in her home at 1690 E. 174th St. in the Soundview section of The Bronx, according to police.

He also allegedly murdered her oldest child, Suchari Guzman, before trying to take his own life.

Police sources told The Post that investigators were looking into claims that Trivino had recently left Vega — and whether that played a role in the killings.

The 2:20 p.m. bloodbath took place as Trivino’s 25-year-old son was out of the house, cops said.

First responders rushed Vega to Jacobi Medical Center, where he was in grave condition Wednesday night, cops said.

Guzman’s 1-year-old girl, Abigail, was removed unharmed from the apartment, where the mortally wounded victims were found in a bedroom, sources said.

Neighbor Damaris Medina, who was friends with Trivino, described her as a “lovely mom” who was “always there for her kids.”

“She always made sure they were OK,” Medina said.

A friend of the former couple who asked not to be identified by name said Vega was an MTA bus driver — as was Trivino. Vega *reportedly quit his job on Dec. 31 due to “personal problems.”

“He was working things out,” the pal said. “He planned to come back maybe next year.”

Trivino and Vega worked out of the same bus depot, according to the friend.

The MTA did not immediately confirm their employment.

Vega’s brother-in-law, Ricardo Ciceras, described him as a heavy drinker who had been sober until recently falling off the wagon. Ciceras said the couple had been together for about two years.

He left to go buy a set of headphones — and came home to the massacre of his mother and sister.

Richard Sicardo’s tragic discovery of Bronx victims Susan Trivino, 54, and her daughter Suchari Guzman, 29, was revealed Thursday by NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce, as the murder suspect — Trivino’s ex, former MTA worker Jorge Vega — remained clinging to life in hospital custody.

Police believe Vega had shot himself in the head after shooting his ex and her daughter at their East 174th Street apartment Wednesday afternoon.

“He had left to go downstairs to get a pair of headphones,” Boyce said of the witness, who sources have confirmed is Sicardo.

“When he came up, he found both had been shot.”

Vega, 52, and his bus-driver girlfriend had ended their rocky relationship just the day before he opened fire at their home, Boyce said

Vega allegedly murdered the mother and daughter using a legally owned 9mm handgun before turning the gun on himself.

Guzman’s 1-year-old girl, Abigail, was in the apartment at the time but was removed unharmed, where the mortally wounded victims were found in a bedroom, sources said Thursday.

“They had just broken up the day before,” Boyce told reporters. “They were going out for quite some time, they had recently moved to that apartment.”

Investigators were looking into claims that Trivino had recently left Vega — and whether that played a role in the killings, a law enforcement source told the Post on Wednesday.

The couple had a previous domestic incident in September 2017, when Vega filed a domestic-incident report following a verbal dispute with his girlfriend. He told police at the time that he and Trivino had been trying to fix their relationship, cops said.

Vega, who is in grave condition at Jacobi Medical Center, was recently fired from his job as a bus driver for the MTA, Boyce said.

“From what we understand he was recently let go for his conduct, and that could play into this,” Boyce said.

But Vega told his friends that he quit his job on Dec. 31 due to “personal problems,” said a pal, who asked to remain anonymous,

“He was working things out,” the friend said. “He planned to come back maybe next year.”

Vega had worked as a bus driver for the MTA since 2012, according to SeeThroughNY.
