Family to sue NYC after shot man left to die on Brooklyn street

“Robert Fason, 44, was shot on the sidewalk in Brooklyn on June 30. NYPD officers arrived at the scene after they learned that shots had been fired, but the family says they never got out of their patrol car, and as a result, Fason lay dying for hours.”

“The family has now officially notified the city that it plans to sue, arguing that the responding officers — despite 911 calls from nearby residents, a call from the victim himself, and alerts from the city’s gunfire detection system known as ShotSpotter — never even got out of their car to search for any potential victims. Meanwhile, Fason lay dying in the street after making his way two blocks from the bar in Bedford-Stuyvesant.“

Robinson & Yablon is representing the family.
