Adam Donohue in a photograph his friends say was taken in jest while he was playing a video game. Donohue was shot and killed by a Boca Raton Police Officer after he allegedly carjacked a taxicab in East Boca.

BOCA RATON, FL ( — For reasons that remain unclear, the Palm Beach County State Attorney's Office confirms to that it is still investigating the Boca Raton Police shooting of FAU student Adam Donohue. Boca Police Officer Brian Pare shot and killed Donohue on March 8th, 2013. The investigation is now in its sixth month. While not policy, police shooting investigations in Palm Beach County traditionally take just a few months.

In one example: a Palm Beach County Sheriff's Deputy was recently cleared by the State Attorney of wrongdoing in a fatal shooting after four months.

The delay in closing the case does not imply wrongdoing by Officer Pare who remains on paid adminstrative leave.

Friends of Adam Donohue continue to say that the 20-year-old described by police is not the 20-year-old that they knew.

Adam Donohue allegedly attempted to carjack a Comcast worker before moving on to successfully carjack a taxicab on the night of his death. Officer Pare responded to the scene, allegedly engaged in a struggle with Donohue before firing his weapon. It happened in the area of NW 4th Avenue and 20th Street.

Donohue was a former wrestler on FAU's team.
