UNIONDALE - Nassau police are considering a change to their communication procedure after the deadly police shooting near Hofstra University.

Earlier this month, home invasion victim 21-year-old Andrea Rebello was accidently shot to death by a police officer. Officials say the Hofstra student was being held in a headlock by an armed gunman, who was also killed.

According to Newsday, investigators want to know if the officer responding to the off-campus robbery should have been aware he was walking into a hostage situation based on radio transmissions.

An internal investigation into the incident is ongoing.
