HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) — An ex-convict suspected of gunning down a New York police officer near the Belmont Park racetrack and then fatally shooting a carjacking victim is set to appear in court.
Nassau County police say Darrell Fuller is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday morning in First District Court in Hempstead.
He was transferred from a hospital to police headquarters on Wednesday. Fuller was hospitalized Tuesday after police say he suffered self-inflicted gunshot wounds. Police say he was arrested hours after he fatally shot a Nassau County officer who suspected he had been involved in a hit-and-run car accident.
The 33-year-old Queens man is suspected of fleeing that shooting and then killing a man while carjacking his vehicle.
It was unknown if he had an attorney.
