Nassau DA Investigating Fatal 1998 Police Shooting | #schoolshooting

HEMPSTEAD, NY — The Nassau County District Attorney’s office is reviewing a case from 1998 in which a Hempstead Village police officer shot and killed a man.

According to Newsday, the case is being reviewed after a request was made by the family’s former attorney. The case involves the death of 28-year-old Paul Maxwell, who attacked the officer — John Zoll — with a baseball bat. Maxwell had a history of mental illness.

Then-District Attorney Denis Dillon investigated the incident and concluded that Zoll acted appropriately.

“Anytime we receive an allegation of this nature, we conduct a thorough review of the facts and circumstances,” said Miriam Sholder, a spokeswoman for currant Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas. “That review, by an Executive Assistant District Attorney, is in progress.”
