      Police say they were called to a resident on Judith Drive on Tuesday around 5:30 p.m. on a report of a man with a handgun threatening his family members.

      According to police, once officers arrived Dimitri walked over to a parked car where his brother, 17-year-old Devontay Robert, was sitting. Dimitri then shot and killed him, and was immediately arrested by police.

      “The officers exercised great restraint,” said Suffolk County Police Detective Lt. Kevin Beyrer. “They essentially witnessed a murder and took an armed suspect into custody without incident.”


      Either I’m missing something or the sequence of events is inaccurately described ... it appears that police had the opportunity to save the young man’s life but they never acted ... that is not really the type of “restraint” we want to see.

        I wouldn't try to figure out the tactical situation based on a news report.
        It appeared obvious to me that the statement made by Lt. Beyrer referred to AFTER the murder took place.

        As to how the murder took place with police around - I could speculate for an hour, but that doesn't really get us anywhere.

              The "restraint" was in not killing him and saving the tax payers many hundreds of thousands of dollars if not more.
              John Valuk is dead. He fell on his head.

                It really depends on how fit or trained the person confronting the perp was. A fatass type of a guy would’ve had no chance without a gun and/or a cannon. A more capable guy like most of the police officers are would’ve been able to address the situation in different ways.

NO... others would refer to it as tangle wood hills or North Coram right below Mt Sinai lol. Where I grew up was like on the border of my Sinai and miller place. I also knew this kid as well. He would come play basketball or football with us because my group of friends knew his older brother.
                  me too in the W section. I always said port jeff just because it was easier.

                    Used to play paintball at the field in Coram off Granny Road. We had regular interlopers from Gordon Heights that would try to steal anything they could

                      At least if you get shot in Gordon Heights, you can stumble across Middle Country Road to Benson's for more ammo...
