Officers suspended for failing to investigate 911 call while man lay dying outside Brooklyn home

NEW YORK — The New York Police Department has suspended two officers who didn’t get out of their patrol car to investigate a 911 call while a man lay dying outside a home.

Police say 44-year-old Robert Fason and another man were shot during an argument outside a Brooklyn bar on Saturday morning.

Fason fled from the scene and collapsed in front of a home.

A witness called 911 to report the injured man, but police say officers went to the scene and reported the call was unnecessary.

The witness called 911 again, and different officers found Fason dead.

NYPD Chief Rodney Harrison said Monday the initial officers have been suspended due to a lack of investigation.
