EMT accused of ignoring dying NYC woman is killed
NEW YORK -- Authorities say an emergency medical technician accused of refusing to help a dying pregnant woman during his coffee break was fatally shot near a New York City nightclub.
Police believe those accusations and the shooting were unrelated.
Police say Jason Green was shot in the face near the Greenhouse club Sunday morning. There have been no arrests.
Green and fellow EMT Melisa Jackson had been under criminal investigation for their handling of a distressed woman at a Brooklyn bakery Dec. 9. They were in line at the bakery when 25-year-old Eutisha Rennix collapsed.
Witnesses say the EMTs told workers to call 911 and left without helping the woman, whose prematurely born baby also died.
The EMTs denied wrongdoing.
