Police Accused of Murdering U.S. Soldier in New York

"We did not find a weapon." - police spokesman

(NEW YORK) - Noel Polanco was chased by an unmarked police car as he drove home; no citizen should ever yield for a random car with a red light, it has been the fall of many innocent people as criminals frequently impersonate police. It cost this U.S. soldier his life. His tearful mother is demanding justice for her son. 'They are going to pay for this,' she said. 'We want justice.'

The shooting, which occurred at 5:15 a.m., was the latest in a series of episodes in which police officers fatally shot or wounded civilians. While the Police Department had explanations in the other instances, it could not immediately provide one for the shooting on Thursday.

"We looked for a weapon afterwards, we didn’t find any; we found a drill,” the police chief spokesman said in a news briefing at Police Headquarters. “I’m not saying it played a role. I’m just saying we looked for a weapon. We did not find a weapon."

A group of officers swarmed the car, yelling for the three people in Mr. Polanco’s car to put their hands up. Mr. Polanco, whose hands were still on the steering wheel, had no time to comply, Ms. Deferrari said. At that instant, a shot rang out, and Mr. Polanco gasped for air, she said.

“I felt the powder in my face,” the passenger said.
