In an apparent case of fatal friendly fire, a uniformed police officer shot a plainclothes Nassau cop who had just arrived to an earlier call for backup at a home in Massapequa Park, authorities said.
The Saturday night shooting came moments after the uniformed police had already shot and killed a suspect in the home who had lunged at them with knives, a police source said.
