The family of the Hofstra student accidentally killed by a cop during a home invasion will sue the Nassau County Police Department.
The lawsuit is based on, what the family calls, “wrongful death, civil rights and negligence.”
Last month, there was a 9-1-1 call of a home invasion at an off-campus apartment.
When police showed up, the suspect had Andrea Rebello in headlock.
He pointed his gun at the officer who fired 8 shots, killing the suspect and the student.
