Attorney for Off-Duty Cop Who Showed Up at Newtown Shooting Says Officer May Be Fired

Says he has PTSD, will only get disability payments for two year


A Newtown police officer traumatized by the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre last December remains out of work and could lose his job.

Officer Thomas Bean, a 12-year department veteran, was off-duty when 20-year-old Adam Lanza walked into the school and gunned down six educators and 20 first-graders on Dec. 14, 2012.

After hearing about the shooting, Bean immediately raced to the school, but the horrific scene inside the building has left him traumatized.
