POLICE TO INVESTIGATE 'EXCESSIVE FORCE' CLAIM
Annapolis police spokesman Dermott Hickey said yesterday the department will "thoroughly investigate" a Severna Park man's charge that three officers used excessive force when they stopped him after a Clay Street shooting last week.
David Nealy, 30, of Jennings Road, filed the charge with the department's Internal Affairs Division Monday.
Nealy said he left the area to avoid getting shot after he heard shots in a pool hall. Two men were wounded in the shooting, and no arrests have been made. Police stopped Nealy on West Street, believing he was a suspect in the shooting.
