NEW YORK (AP) – Two men have been indicted on murder and other charges in the friendly fire death of New York City police Det. Brian Simonsen.

Simonsen was shot in the chest as he and six other officers opened fire on Christopher Ransom during a robbery at a T-Mobile store in Queens last month.

Police say Ransom was pointing a fake handgun. His accomplice, 25-year-old Jagger Freeman, is accused of being his lookout.

The 27-year-old Ransom is also charged with robbing several other cellphone stores in October and January.

Both men pleaded not guilty at their arraignments Monday.
