The Hofstra University student killed during a home invasion robbery was the victim of friendly fire from a veteran cop who unleashed a barrage of bullets when the armed intruder pointed a gun at him, Nassau County police announced tonight.
Andrea Rebello was accidentally shot in the head while career criminal Dalton Smith had her in a headlock and used her as a human shield while trying to escape out the back door, Det. Lt. John Azzata said.
The unidentified cop fired eight rounds, seven of which struck and killed Smith, and one of which hit Rebello, he said.
Smith was wielding a 9mm pistol with a bullet in the chamber and another in the magazine, Azzata said.
But he never got off a shot during the deadly violence early Friday morning inside Rebello's off-campus house in Uniondale, said police.
