NASSAU COUNTY, NY — Nassau County cops say they're baffled as to why a colleague was fatally shot by an officer from another department during mop-up duty at the scene of a police shooting already under control.

Up to 10 minutes had passed Saturday night before shotgun-toting plainclothes cop Geoff Breitkopf arrived at the Massapequa Park, LI, home where officers had shot and killed a knifewielding Satan worshiper.
