Essex DA to probe motive in Beverly officer’s shooting

Essex District Attorney Jonathan Blodgett will try to determine the motive behind the shooting of a Beverly police officer by Hamilton Police Sergeant Ken Nagy, and continues to investigate the off-duty violence between the two veteran officers, his spokeswoman said this afternoon.

Carrie Kimball Monahan had said earlier today that the inquiry that began last Friday when Nagy shot and wounded Officer Jason Lantych and then killed himself would not include looking for a motive because Nagy is dead and no criminal charges could be brought against him.
