An NYPD cop was charged with second-degree murder Monday in an off-duty road-rage shooting in Brooklyn that left another driver dead in the street — marking the first case brought under an executive order signed in the wake of the Eric Garner killing, sources said.
Wayne Isaacs, 37, was indicted on the rap, along with first-degree manslaughter, by a Brooklyn grand jury following a probe by state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who last year began serving as a special prosecutor for all police killings of civilians in New York, sources said.
Isaacs is the first cop charged by the special prosecutor since Gov. Andrew Cuomo appointed Schneiderman to that role in August 2015, nearly a year to the day after Garner’s chokehold death during his arrest on Staten Island.
At the time, Cuomo said he was addressing a “crisis of confidence in the criminal justice system” in a bid to prevent “anarchy.”
