Hofstra student killed by police during break-in
In what police are describing as a crime of opportunity, a wanted man with a criminal history dating nearly 15 years entered a front door that had been left open at a New York home near Hofstra University.
A short time later, the intruder, Dalton Smith, and a 21-year-old college junior, Andrea Rebello, were both dead. The two were killed early Friday by a Nassau County police officer who fired eight shots at the masked man, hitting him seven times but also accidentally hitting Rebello once in the head, Nassau County homicide squad Lt. John Azzata said Saturday.
Smith was holding Rebello in a headlock and pointing a gun at her head before he turned his gun at the officer, Azzata said, prompting the shooting.
”He kept saying, ’I’m going to kill her,’ and then he pointed the gun at the police officer,” Azzata said.
A loaded 9 mm handgun with a serial number scratched off was found at the scene, police said.
Nassau County Police Commissioner Thomas Dale said he had traveled to Rebello’s Tarrytown, N.Y., home to explain to Rebello’s parents what happened.
”I felt obligated as a police commissioner and as a parent to inform them as soon as all the forensic results were completed,” Dale said.
The veteran police officer, who was not identified, has about 12 years of experience on the Nassau County police force and previously spent several years as a New York City police officer, Dale said.
The officer is currently out on sick leave. He will be the focus of an internal police investigation once the criminal investigation is completed, which is standard police procedure in any officer-involved shooting, the commissioner said.
The shooting came just days before the school’s commencement ceremonies, which are scheduled for Sunday.
A university spokeswoman said students will be handed white ribbons to wear in memory of Rebello. The shooting, which took place just steps from campus, has cast a pall over the university community as it geared up for commencement.
Earlier Saturday, police announced that Smith, 30, had been wanted on a parole violation related to a first-degree robbery conviction. A warrant was issued for Smith on April 25 for absconding from parole, police said.
Smith had what police described as ”an extensive criminal history,” which included arrests for robbery in the first degree in 1999, promoting prison contraband in the second degree in 2000, robbery in the first degree in 2003, assault in the second degree in 2003 and robbery in the second degree in 2003.
Rebello was in the two-story home in Uniondale, N.Y., with her twin sister Jessica, a third woman and a man when Smith, wearing a ski mask, walked into the house through an open front door, Azzata said.
The door was left open after someone had moved a car that was blocking a driveway, Azzata said.
When Smith entered, he demanded valuables and was told they were upstairs, Azzata said.
Smith, apparently unsatisfied with the valuables upstairs, asked if any of the four had a bank account and could withdraw money, Azzata said. The intruder then allowed the unidentified woman to leave and collect money from an ATM, telling her she had only eight minutes to come back with cash before he killed one of her friends, Azzata said.
The woman left for the bank and called 911, according to Azzata.
Minutes later, two police officers arrived at the home and found Rebello’s twin sister Jessica running out of the front door and the male guest hiding behind a couch on the first floor, Azzata said.
One of the officers entered the home and encountered Smith holding onto Rebello in a headlock, coming down the stairs, Azzata said. Smith pulled Rebello closer and started moving backward toward a rear door of the house, pointing the gun at her head before eventually threatening the officer, Azzata said.
The Rev. Osvaldo Franklin, who gave Rebello and her twin their first communions, on Saturday night told The Associated Press their mother, Nella, couldn’t even speak to him earlier in the day.
”She was so devastated,” said Franklin. ”She’s just crying. We have to pray for Andrea, to pray for Jessica because she needs help.”
Franklin said a funeral is scheduled for Wednesday at Teresa of Avila Church in Sleepy Hollow, N.Y., and will be in Portuguese.
”The family’s a very good family, they have very good values,” he said. ”They are a very good, very devoted family.”

North Korea fires short-range missiles for two days in a row
North Korea fired a short-range missile from its east coast on Sunday, a day after launching three of these missiles, a South Korean news agency said, ignoring calls for restraint from Western powers.
Launches by the North of short-range missiles are not uncommon but, after recent warnings from the communist state of impending nuclear war, such actions have raised concerns about the region’s security.
”North Korea fired a short-range missile as it did yesterday into its east sea in the afternoon, ” South Korea’s news agency Yonhap reported, citing a military official.
A South Korean defense ministry official confirmed the Yonhap report, but did not provide any details.
U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said he was concerned about North Korea’s launch of short-range missiles, urging Pyonyang to refrain from further launches and return to stalled nuclear talks with world powers.
Ban, who spoke to Russian state news agency RIA Novosti during a visit to Moscow, called Saturday’s launch a ”provocative action”.
Tension on the Korean peninsula has subsided in the past month, having run high for several weeks after the United Nations Security Council imposed tougher sanctions against Pyongyang following its third nuclear test in February.
The North had for weeks issued nearly daily warnings of impending nuclear war with the South and the United States.
South Korea’s Unification Ministry criticized the missile tests as deplorable and urged the North to lower tensions and hold talks over a suspended inter-Korean industrial park in the North’s border city of Kaesong.
South Korea pulled out all of its workers from the industrial zone early this month after North Korea withdrew its 53,000 workers as tensions mounted.

I’ll be the first to say you always on point
this is nicki right on point
aint it dj
I definitely hear Nicki on this!!! Great work as always Caterer!
i can see nickki on this i see you fam
thanks intellects wish me luck
thats mos def for nucki.. #respect fam
This is fireeeee! It is def. Nicki’s beat. She would kill it.
that’s what I said thanks
FINALLY GOT SOME SOUNDS OVA HERE!! LOL. THIS IS A G1! U NEED 2 GET THIS 2 HER!..SOMEHOW! NICE WORK!
Nice, but that filter technique sounding a bit familiar there homeskillet! lol
yeah it aint new mike will and t minus use it a lot I just used it cause I thought it would sound good for the beat plus I was inspired by mike will
Yeah, Mike Will been killing it lately. We tried it on a few joints as well. Bout to go away from it though ppl starting to connect it with him.
Yeah they are
You should look into getting a manager so you can get these placed!
I been trying they wont fuck with u unless u have credits already under your belt or a big following fans etc….they don’t care how good your music is that’s why most music out here in the industry so whack now. the best thing I can do is try to get some placements on my own first i’m trying hard it’s a struggle though
I feel you. Find a legitimate artist with a fan base you can work with, and get the right paperwork. Takes traveling & networking meeting right ppl.
i’m pushing my artist and I network go to these events they tell u the same thing get hot get a fan base and following so I don’t go to them they don’t work it’s hard to get known out of south Carolina but I hope that change since that girl from American idol Candice glover won the American idol she the reason I still got hope maybe I can make something and get it on her album if the label don’t be bullshitting
If she won American idol it’s not so much the label will be bs’n but she is already under several contracts before even landing whatever major if it hasn’t been confirmed yet. Getting her prior to winning would have been ordeal but still possible. Unlikely. What about alpoko Don? Did you know he made the billboard indie charts & overseas charts? He makes beats with his hands but who says he won’t use production later? We had him on our show and he plans to do more.
nah i’m good i’ma push my own artist check this out we was looking for feed back on our song pour it up so we sent it to rock city aka planet 6 next thing u know they stole our idea now Rihanna have a song called pour it up written by planet 6 they didn’t steal the song but they didn’t give us feed back instead they stole the idea so we can’t win for loose
That’s crazy. Had that happen to me a long time ago so I got on my paperwork heavy but even that don’t stop ppl. Sry to hear that. On that note please disregard all the advice I’ve thrown & good luck to you & your team! You’re very talented
we had our song copywritten and had the paper work right but the song didn’t sound the same so it wasn’t even worth getting a lawyer and going thru all of that cause people probably wont believe that I sent them the song and they probably will deny it so…
Right! Totally get where you comin from
Another thing would be your artist pushing themselves just as much as you are to ensure you both are getting your fair share of promo in & out. Everyone is saying the same thing because there is some truth to it. You may hear repeated information but chances are there will be new networks. A physical presence beats online any day. There is no one way or right/wrong way into the industry but you can increase your chances by at least applying the knowledge, & talent/networking aspects which you clearly have. If SC has not caught on to you yet then move to a market in which you could be productive. Putting my city on doesn’t mean I have to reside there 24/7. Can’t nobody do s or be as effective w/o moving around at some point. When online, and conferences aren’t working, then it’s time to maybe look into working w again, an artist who already has an established fan base free of contracts. It takes many years to get in. I kno to peeps spent about a decade. Hang in there & just know only you can decide when it’s time to take your production, and brand to a whole new level. Put your self on. Create your own opportunities, lanes, & meet me at the top where we headed! Lol
nah i’m good on that i’ma stay right here I kinda got a plan I just haven’t told nobody about it yet I hope it work it’s working for other people wo getting placements maybe it will work for me I know they same thing don’t work for everybody though
He can maybe fuck with it
your song whack delete it off my post
I’m not the rapper, I’m the director. That’s I’m looking for in feedback young.
post it in pump it or dump it room for feedback or tag people spamming aint gonna help u man
thanks. what did you think of the directing though?
its aight not the best
it’s time for me to go shake up @playhousehw something crazy like,LA lets go!!!!!!!
Why portray anybody when you yourself are created uniquely different….its a JOY to find who you really are and your purpose …..to be and do you everyday is perfect…you can honestly say I’m ME…..I’m doing ME…..im not following, acting or being nobody but ME (YOUR PORTRAIT).
