NYC officer pleads not guilty in suburban shooting

Posted: Updated:

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) - A New York City policeman has pleaded not guilty to charges of attempted murder, assault and drunken driving.

Suspended Officer Brendan Cronin is accused in connection with the apparently random shooting attack on two men in a car at a suburban intersection on April 29. Cronin was off-duty.

The passenger in the car was hit six times. The driver, who was not hit, was at Thursday's arraignment.

He said he wanted Cronin to see his face. He said Cronin saw only the back of his head during the shooting.

A judge signed orders of protection demanding that Cronin stay away from the two men. They have served notice that they plan to sue Cronin and New York City.

Cronin and his lawyer left the courthouse without commenting.
