Off-duty Ramapo Detective Cleared in Fatal Shooting Last Summer

An off-duty Ramapo Police detective has been cleared by an Orange County grand jury in the fatal shooting of his neighbor in Cornwall last summer. Orange County District Attorney David Hoovler announced state criminal charges would not be brought against the unidentified detective, who shot the unidentified 40 year-old victim after he threatened him with a knife. The District Attorney determined the off-duty detective’s actions in this case were a justifiable use of deadly physical force in self-defense, though the victim was determined to suffer from mental illness and associated issues.
