NY cop who fired gun at school found at fault, resigns
An investigation concluded the incident, though unintentional, was due to "officer error," the department said
HIGHLAND, N.Y. — Sean McCutcheon, the resource officer who fired a shot from his service weapon in a hallway at Highland High School, has resigned from the Lloyd Police Department after an investigation concluded the incident, though unintentional, was due to “officer error,” the department said on Friday.
McCutcheon, a retired New Paltz police officer who had been the resource officer at Highland High School since early this year, was placed on leave while Lloyd police investigated the March 5 incident.
A single shot was fired from McCutcheon’s department-issued Glock 45 pistol at 1:38 p.m. that day as he was on foot patrol in a hallway at the school, police said at the time.
