Life in prison with no parole for killer of NYPD officer

The Associated Press

NEW YORK — A man who shot and killed a New York Police Department officer during a traffic stop has been sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Twenty-nine-year-old Allan Cameron was sentenced in Brooklyn court on a charge of first-degree murder.

On November 28th of 2005 Officer Dillon Stewart and his partner were pursuing a car driven by Cameron that had stolen New Jersey license plates.

Prosecutors say Cameron started shooting when the unmarked police car pulled alongside the car he was driving.

Stewart was wearing a bulletproof vest but was hit in the armpit, which was not protected. The bullet struck his heart.

Cameron's attorneys had suggested Stewart's wounds came from the misfire of another officer's gun.
