BRONX DISTRICT ATTORNEY DARCEL D. CLARK STATEMENT
ON FATAL SHOOTING OF DEBORAH DANNER BY NYPD SERGEANT
“We have been informed that New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has opted not to exercise his jurisdiction to investigate the fatal shooting of Deborah Danner by an NYPD sergeant on October 18, 2016, in her apartment at 630 Pugsley Avenue in the Bronx.
“I intend to conduct a full, reasoned and independent investigation into this matter, with an open mind, and any decisions that I make will be based upon the evidence.
“I have assigned a seasoned prosecutor, Wanda Perez-Maldonado, the Chief of my Public Integrity Bureau, to lead this investigation, under the supervision of Jean T. Walsh, Chief of the Investigations Division, and with the assistance of our Homicide Bureau.”
