The wife of a Brooklyn man who investigators say was killed by an off-duty NYPD officer in an
apparent road rage incident spoke out Tuesday.
A stoic officer Wayne Isaacs walked into court in Brooklyn for a pretrial hearing that focuses on
statements he made on the night he allegedly shot and killed 37-year-old Delrawn Small.
The deadly encounter in East New York last July was the result of an alleged road rage incident.
Video surveillance from a nearby shop appeared to contradict some of the then off-duty cop's
initial statement about the shooting.
"That video blatantly shows my brother being murdered. Not shot, murdered," said Victor
Dempsey, the victim's brother.
Tuesday, two officers and an EMT testified about that night.
They confirmed Isaac's complaints about an injured jaw reportedly as a result of being punched
It is testimony the defense insists backs up their client's version of events.
This case is under additional scrutiny because it's the first in which the state Attorney General is
acting as a special prosecutor.
"I believe justice will be done. This guy will pay for his actions," said Wenona Small, victim's wife.
Isaacs is charged with second-degree murder.
He was a police officer in the 79th Precinct.
Authorities believe the officer and victim, a father of three, may have been engaged in a road rage
incident for several blocks.
