                NEW YORK -  A number of protestors were arrested as hundreds gathered in New York City’s  Union Square at a march for a man who was allegedly killed by an off-duty NYPD officer in what is being described as apparent road rage.

                The incident occurred early Monday when the off-duty officer who was driving his car, got into an argument with another driver.  Police report the civilian exited his vehicle, which had a 5-month old inside, and punched the officer’s head through an open window on the driver’s side.

                Police say the beating continued even though the officer identified himself as a member of the NYPD.  He pulled out his service revolver and shot the unarmed victim three times.

                A video has surfaced which seems to indicate the officer started shooting just as the victim approached his window.

                New York State officials are investigating the incident.
