Police-on-police shootings rare; guidelines rarer
Police-on-police deaths like NY pharmacy shootings are rare, but so are guidelines
By The Associated Press

GARDEN CITY, N.Y. (AP) ' There are few protocols in place to guide off-duty and retired police officers who happen upon a crime.

A 2010 New York state study called for policy changes, but few appear to have been implemented.

The issue has come into focus after last weekend's shooting death of an off-duty ATF agent trying to intervene in a pharmacy holdup.

A law enforcement source tells The Associated Press the agent likely died from shots fired by a retired police lieutenant trying to assist at the scene.

The suspect in the robbery was also shot, apparently by an off-duty NYPD officer.

Nassau County police have not commented on details of the shooting, citing the ongoing investigation.
