The three detectives acquitted in the Sean Bell shooting death will appear in the NYPD trial room Thursday as part of the disciplinary process against them.
Bell was killed in a 50-shot fusillade outside a Jamaica, Queens, strip club on his wedding day in 2006. Police, under the mistaken impression that Bell and two friends had a weapon, opened fire when Bell rammed his car into an unmarked police van.
Detectives Michael Oliver and Gescard Isnora were acquitted in 2008 of manslaughter, while Detective Marc Cooper was acquitted of reckless endangerment. They were later slapped with NYPD administrative charges, accused of "discharging their firearms outside of department guidelines."
