Investigators say 31-year-old Jason Beller, of Commack, crashed into a utility pole on Bellmore Avenue Tuesday night. When Bellmore volunteer firefighter and EMT Justin Angell, 20, approached Beller's car to offer help, police say the driver opened fire, hitting Angell in the hip.
Police say Beller fired at least eight shots at first responders.
Cops say Beller was loaded with weapons, a rifle strapped to his chest, extra ammunition tucked into his wristbands and six guns in his car when he was shot dead by police.
Investigators say Beller's wife filed a domestic complaint earlier that night.
"Pretty scary, [but] it could have been a lot worse," Angell said while leaving Nassau University Medical Center this morning.
