Officer Says Columbine Probe Would Clear Him

January 21, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

An officer accused by parents of accidentally killing their son during the Columbine High School massacre says he is disappointed a coroner's inquest won't be held because he believes it would exonerate him.

"I want this in the public eye. I'm sick and tired of this conspiracy label," Denver Police Sgt. Dan O'Shea said in an interview published in the Denver Post. "I was nowhere near this kid."

A sheriff's report said 15-year-old Daniel Rohrbough was killed by student gunman Dylan Klebold. On Thursday, the Jefferson County coroner denied a request to call an inquest, saying the evidence supports the official finding.
