New York State DA Will Not Investigate Westchester Police Shooting

According to officials in Westchester County, the task force set up to investigate police involved shootings in New York will not be looking into the death of a bystander who was killed on Friday when a NYPD officer opened fire on a suspect. On Friday afternoon in Mount Vernon an undercover officer fired shots at 37-year old Alvin Smother, who was allegedly selling illegal firearms, after he pulled a gun out and pointed it at the officer. 61-year old Felix Kumi was struck twice by stray bullets during the incident and was pronounced dead on Saturday morning. Officials stated on Tuesday that New York State District Attorney Eric Schneiderman will not be investigating the man’s death and Westchester District Attorney Janet DiFiore will remain in charge of the case.
