WARWICK, R.I. (WPRI) — Witness testimony resumed Monday morning in the assault trial of Pawtucket Police Officer Daniel Dolan.

New evidence was presented to the court, including the 911 call Dolan made after shooting and wounding a teenage driver outside a West Greenwich pizza shop in June 2021.

“I’m on Route 3 at the shop right in front of the liquor store. I just shot a kid. I’m an off-duty police officer,” he can be heard saying in the recording.

The court also listened to the interview Dolan gave to Rhode Island State Police that night. He told investigators he thought the car was possibly fleeing a crime scene, so he followed it off I-95 and tried to talk to the driver.

Surveillance video from the scene shows the car driven by Dominic Vincent, then 18 years old, pull into the parking lot before Dolan’s pickup truck pulls up beside it. Dolan then gets out of his truck and moves toward the car, which backs up off screen as Dolan follows.

It was then, according to police, that Dolan fired a single shot into the vehicle and hit Vincent in the arm.

Vincent told police he tried to flee since he wasn’t aware of what was happening and didn’t know Dolan was a police officer, since he was in plainclothes and driving his personal vehicle.

Dolan maintains he was acting in the interest of public safety after seeing Vincent speeding on the highway. He said he pulled his weapon out because he truly thought he was in danger of being run over while trying to stop the car.

“OK so he drove by. He was driving in the breakdown lane, around people, going about 100 miles an hour. I pull off the highway, he pulls in,” Dolan can be heard saying in the 911 call.

A Rhode Island State Police sergeant who specializes in crash reconstruction testified last week that Vincent was driving an estimated 108 mph, based on surveillance video and traffic cameras in the area.

The jury on Monday also saw a front-facing photo of what Dolan was wearing that day, which included a T-shirt with a Pawtucket Police Department logo on it. He said he was on his way home from a shift as a school resource officer when the incident took place.

“I get out, I got my Pawtucket police shirt on, I pull out my badge and tell him to stop,” Dolan stated on the 911 call. “He said ‘No,’ so I stand in front of the car and he drives at me.”

The prosecution and defense disagree on where exactly Dolan was when he opened fire. The state said he was beside the car at the time, while Dolan’s defense team claims he was in front of the car.

Dolan was charged with felony assault after R.I. State Police and the Attorney General’s Office determined the shooting was not justified.

The trial is scheduled to resume on Tuesday.
