BREAKING NEWS:  Andrea Rebello was killed by a police officer’s bullet, not by career criminal Dalton Smith, USA Today reports. It had earlier been reported that the 21 year old junior was murdered by Dalton Smith during a home invasion.

Authorities say a police officer’s bullet killed a New York college student during the response to a home invasion at an off-campus home.

Nassau County homicide squad Lt. John Azzata said Saturday night that Andrea Rebello was killed by a police officer as she was being held in a headlock by a masked intruder.

Azzata says the police officer opened fire as Dalton Smith made a motion to fire at the officers early Saturday morning.

Azzata says the officer fired eight shots, hitting Smith seven times and Rebello once in the head, killing her.
