BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — BocaNewsNow.com has learned that a Grand Jury cleared Boca Raton Police Officer Brian Pare in the March 11th shooting death of Florida Atlantic University student Adam Donohue, leading the Palm Beach County State Attorney’s Office to close its investigation. The Grand Jury determined that Pare used justifiable force when he killed the 20-year-old.
Donohue, according to police and eyewitnesses, was shot and killed after he allegedly tried but failed to carjack a Comcast worker, then carjacked a taxicab in the area of NW4th Avenue and 20th Street. What led the young man described by friends and family as peaceful and well-behaved to launch his rampage remains unclear.
Pare, a former FAU student and Owls football player himself, has been reinstated to full duty. He was sidelined, with full pay, during the investigation.
Donohue, who a background check revealed lived in Iowa, the Tampa area, Boca Raton and Delray Beach, is seen holding a gun in the Facebook photo seen here. Friends and family say the photo was taken while he was playing a video game. He is a former FAU wrestler and had no criminal history at the time of his death.
