NYPD Officer Stripped of Badge and Gun After Road Rage Shooting

Security footage has raised new questions about the incident

A policeman was stripped of his badge and gun after security footage cast doubt on initial reports of a road rage shooting in Brooklyn.

NYPD Officer Wayne Isaacs was originally believed to have fatally shot Delrawn Small after Small reached through his window and punched him during a traffic dispute on July 4. But security footage obtained by the New York Post seemed to show Isaacs shooting Small as soon as Small arrived at his window, the Associated Press reports. The video is now under review.

Isaacs, who was wearing civilian clothes during the incident, has been placed on modified assignment while the shooting is investigated. NYPD Commissioner William Bratton says investigators are “still seeking additional videos” and looking for a possible witness.

Isaacs’ police union declined to comment to the AP.
