A Nassau County police officer was shot this morning at around 11 a.m. on the Cross Island Parkway, according to police radio traffic. He, along with one of the two suspects who was also shot, was transported to North Shore LIJ where one report said they were pronounced dead on arrival. The other suspect was arrested. Nassau County police said they had no information regarding the incident. Attempts to reach the NYPD failed.
After the shooting, the Cross Island Parkway was closed in both directions at Jamaica Avenue. The northbound side was reopened 40 minutes later. Nassau EMS officials confirmed the suspect’s death, but not that of the officer.
