Video surfaces in accidental shooting of off duty NYPD officer
By Philip Messing and Murray Weiss
The New York Post
A cellphone video taken in the chaotic aftermath of the friendly-fire slaying of Omar Edwards shows a group of cops milling around the mortally wounded off-duty officer, but not one trying to help him.
At the time, the officers on the scene had no idea he was a fellow cop and believed him to be a criminal suspect.
