MINEOLA - The man accused of killing a Nassau police officer and a Brooklyn man in 2012 was found guilty on all counts Monday, including charges of first-degree murder.
The jury deliberated for several hours Friday and then again Monday before concluding that Darrell Fuller was guilty.
Fuller shot Nassau Police Officer Arthur Lopez during a traffic stop following a hit-and-run on the Cross Island Parkway in October 2012. After killing Lopez, Fuller fled the scene and then fatally shot Raymond Facey, of Brooklyn, before stealing Facey's car and fleeing to Queens.
