Parolee Darrell Fuller Convicted In Killing Of Cop, 2nd Man

Posted: Updated:

MINEOLA, N.Y. (AP) -- A New York City parolee has been convicted of killing a police officer and a second man in 2012.

Thirty-four-year-old Darrell Fuller faces a sentence of life without parole. He was convicted of murder Monday in the shooting of Nassau County Emergency Services Officer Arthur Lopez and bystander Raymond Facey near the Belmont Park racetrack on Long Island.

The officer was shot at point-blank range by Fuller, who was pulled over after a brief highway chase. Police had stopped the Queens man after witnessing a hit-and-run car accident.

Facey was killed moments after Lopez was shot. Authorities said Fuller carjacked the man's vehicle because the tires on his car had been blown out in the earlier car accident.
