Hamilton, Beverly police plan internal investigations of officer’s shooting
Police in both Beverly and Hamilton will conduct separate internal investigations into the shooting of a Beverly officer by a Hamilton officer at a busy shopping plaza on Friday. Kenneth Nagy, a police sergeant in Hamilton, shot Jason Lantych twice before fleeing the scene. Nagy, 43, returned a few hours later and killed himself with a gunshot to the head. The district attorney’s office is also investigating the incident and eyeing the relationship between Lantych and Nagy’s widow, who worked together at the Beverly police department and were friends. Authorities say the men knew each other and had arranged to meet, but have not divulged a motive for the shooting.
