An FDNY emergency medical technician accused of ignoring a dying pregnant woman while on a break last year was shot and killed outside a Manhattan nightclub early Sunday, police and FDNY officials said.
Jason Green, 32 - who was suspended by the FDNY for 30 days for abandoning Au Bon Pain worker Eutisha Rennix in December - was shot in the face outside of Greenhouse club in Soho about 5 a.m., police said. He was off duty at the time.
Green, who joined the FDNY in November of 2003, had been refused entry into the popular nightspot, which is on Varick St. in the West Village, police said.
The gunman who killed Green fired from inside a car near the intersection of Vandam St. and Hudson St., about a block from the club, police said.
Green, of Jackson Heights, Queens, was pronounced dead at New York Downtown Hospital a short time later, police said. There were no arrests.
FDNY spokesman Jim Long confirmed that Green was the EMS dispatcher who was investigated in connection with the death of Rennix, 25, at Au Bon Pain in downtown Brooklyn on Dec. 9.
Green and follow EMT Melisa Jackson, 23, were eating at the coffee shop near FDNY headquarters when an employee asked them to call 911 for help.
Jackson called a fellow dispatcher to report the incident, but witnesses said she and Green did not try to help Rennix, who was six months pregnant.
Rennix and her premature baby died hours later
