An eight-year veteran of the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department has been identified as the shooter who killed a man who was attacking a woman in a San Jacinto trailer June 4.

Killed – Louis James Skelly (Larimer County, CO)

Louis James Skelly

FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP/CBS4) — Sheriff’s officials say a Livermore man who was fatally shot by a deputy Monday had called 911 to complain about a neighbor, then used a semiautomatic rifle to open fire on deputies who responded.

Larimer County coroner’s officials said Wednesday that Louis James Skelly, 60, died of multiple gunshot wounds.

A deputy had checked on Skelly on Monday afternoon after a neighbor reported gunshots and yelling but found no further action was needed.

Skelly later called 911 to complain about a neighbor and other issues. Sheriff’s officials say that as two deputies approached his property, Skelly fired his semi-automatic rifle. One deputy returned fire with his department-issued AR15 rifle, striking Skelly. He died of multiple gunshot wounds from the AR15. The deputies weren’t wounded.

No further action was taken during the first visit early Monday afternoon. But when deputies returned just before 6 p.m. to investigate complaints made by Skelly via 911 calls that afternoon, he started shooting a semi-automatic SKS rifle at them, according to the news release.

The Selma Police Department says one of its off duty officers shot and killed his ex-girlfriend and her stepfather, then turned the gun on himself.

At 12:10 p.m. Selma police responded to a shooting at the 2400 block of Springdale Street.

Double Shooting – Killed – Ricardo Diaz-Zeferino (Gardena, CA)

male

Ricardo Diaz-Zeferino, a 34-year-old Latino, was shot and killed by police on Sunday, June 2, in the 1600 block of West Redondo Beach Boulevard in Gardena, according to L.A. County coroner’s records.

Gardena police officers responded to a reported robbery at a drugstore in the 15700 block of Western Avenue in Gardena, according to an L.A. County Sheriff’s Department news release.

The caller said that a bicycle had been stolen and two Latinos were involved.

As an officer arrived on the scene, he saw two men on bicycles on Redondo Beach Boulevard coming from the direction where the alleged robbery occurred, the release said. The officer attempted to detain the two men, issuing commands in English and Spanish.

One of the men, according to the department, “behaved strangely and did not follow orders.” As more officers arrived to help,  Diaz-Zeferino, who was not one of the men on the bikes, intervened, placing himself between the officers and the two other men.

Officers asked Diaz-Zeferino to place his hands in the air. According to the officers’ account, Diaz-Zeferino instead reached for his waistband and advanced toward the officers. Several of the officers fired at Diaz-Zeferino, striking him in the upper torso.

He died at 2:45 a.m., coroner’s records show.

A sheriff’s investigator told the Daily Breeze that Diaz-Zeferino probably had no connection to the robbery. Gardena police also told the newspaper that an audio recording would be made available in the next few weeks.

Neither the Sheriff’s Department or Gardena police officials would comment to the Daily Breeze on whether Diaz-Zeferino had a weapon.

An attorney for the Diaz-Zeferino family told the newspaper that he was trying to tell police that the men they had stopped did not commit the crime.

“He was trying to tell the cops that they are not the ones who stole the bicycles,”  Richard Samuel Paz said.

The fatally wounded man was identified as Ricardo Diaz-Zeferino, 34, whose home town was unknown, said coroner’s Lt. Joe Bale. He died at the scene.

The shooting occurred about 2:30 a.m. Sunday after officers responded to a “robbery – just occurred” call at a drug store in the 15700 block of Western Avenue, the statement said. A CVS store is located in that block.

A bullet also hit one of the other men in the upper body. He was taken to a hospital and was expected to survive. The second man was not injured and was detained as police investigated the robbery. No officers were hurt.

Killed – Ross Batista (Boston, MA)

Ross Batista

The man shot and killed by Boston police officers after he allegedly opened fire on them on early Sunday was identified by a law enforcement source today as a 38-year-old Dorchester resident.

The death of Ross Baptista is under investigation by Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley’s office. In a statement Sunday, Conley promised “a full and impartial investigation’’ into the use of deadly force by Boston police.

The Globe reported today that Baptista was shot around 2 a.m. Sunday after he allegedly opened fire on officers from Area B-3 who were on Willowwood Street to investigate reports of shots being fired in the neighborhood on the Mattapan/Dorchester line.

A man sitting in a vehicle opened fire on the officers, who fired back in response, fatally wounding Baptista, police said in a statement.

According to BPDnews.com, police responded twice to reports of shots fired in the area of 76 Willowwood St., Dorchester and around 1:50 AM they shot and killed an armed suspect after he allegedly turned his gun on them.

Witnesses still on scene at a party told officers a male had a firearm and was shooting. Officers approached the suspect who was in his motor vehicle. During the confrontation, the suspect fired at officers, who returned fire. The suspect was shot and was pronounced deceased at Boston Medical Center.

Killed – Kyree Johnson (Philadelphia, PA)

male

GERMANTOWN – May 30, 2013 (WPVI) – Officials are investigating the latest police involved shooting and, in this case, they have video surveillance obtained exclusively by Action News.

Surveillance video shows a police car pull to the curb behind another car, a gold Nissan.

According to police, it was around 10:00 p.m. Wednesday when an officer stopped along the 4500 block of Wayne Avenue in the city’s Germantown section to check on curfew violations in the area.

While the officer sat in his car two men got out of the Nissan and began running north up Wayne Avenue. He then observed the driver of the car get out and start shooting at the fleeing men.

As the shooting starts, the video shows pedestrians running for cover.

The startled officer responded by jumping out of his vehicle and ordering the suspect to drop the gun. Police say the suspect apparently didn’t know it was a police car that pulled in behind him, and continued to shoot at the men running from the car.

The officer then opened fire on the gunman.

The suspect, identified as 22-year-old Kyree Johnson, was shot multiple times and taken to Albert Einstein Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

Double Shooting – Killed – Mhai Scott (Sterling, VA)

female

The family of a woman fatally shot while handing out samples at Costco is questioning the use of deadly force against their loved one.

The melee began at about 3 p.m. Wednesday, when store employees noticed 38-year-old Mhai Scott acting oddly while handing out pizza samples, said Loudoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman.

Scott reportedly became upset when she ran out of pizza, reported Northern Virginia Bureau Chief Julie Carey. Witnesses said she was waving a knife and scissors, threatening employees.

Deputies were called to the store to handle the disturbance. After they arrived, Scott — who worked for a company that handles sampling at Costco stores — approached the officers with the sharp items, authorities said.

One deputy tried to use a stun gun on Scott, but Chapman said the stun gun “did not work,” and another deputy fatally shot her.

A sheriff’s deputy also was wounded in the leg by a ricocheting bullet. The injury was not life-threatening.

Nathaniel McRae

WASHINGTON – An ambulance carrying a carjacking suspect, who was shot by D.C. police, broke down on the way to the hospital Wednesday afternoon.

The suspect, 34-year-old Nathaniel McRae of Northwest D.C., was pronounced dead at the hospital after he was moved to a second ambulance.

The man was shot by police, who had been pursuing him, when he got out of the stolen vehicle along Barnaby Street SE. An officer was injured during the incident.

Police have not released the name of the officer.

McRae was transported by D.C. Fire and EMS from the 800 block of Barnaby Street SE after the 2:20 p.m. officer-involved shooting. While driving to the hospital, the ambulance’s engine light came on, indicating the vehicle had to be shut down, said Fire and EMS spokesman Tim Wilson.

The ambulance broke down on D.C. 295, Wilson said.

“Within minutes another unit was available to take the patient to an area hospital,” Wilson said.

McRae was moved to another ambulance and taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. Wilson did not know how long it took for the second ambulance to arrive or the total time it took to transport the patient.

Killed – Bernard Peters (Oakland, CA)

male

A man shot and killed by Oakland police was identified Friday as 22-year-old Bernard Peters Jr. of San Francisco.

Peters was shot about 2 p.m. May 29 near the corner of Bancroft Avenue and Ritchie Street.

The episode began when police developed information that three men in a Chevrolet Suburban were armed with a gun, authorities said.

Officers spotted the vehicle near 90th Avenue and Plymouth Street and tried to stop it, but the driver did not pull over.

The SUV continued to 77th and Bancroft avenues, where the men jumped out and fled on foot. An officer confronted Peters near Bancroft and Ritchie and Peters was shot, police said. A loaded handgun, reported stolen in Georgia, was found nearby, police said.

Two other men, parolee Jeron Smith, 26, and David McCann, 19, both of Oakland, were arrested. Smith is on parole for robbery and drug possession.

Killed – Angela Smith (Crossville, TN)

Angela Smith1

CROSSVILLE (WATE) – A Cumberland County woman was shot and killed early Wednesday morning after she ran from law enforcement agents and later raised a gun at them.

The incident began when Crossville police got a call from a woman saying her adult daughter was on drugs and had jumped out of her car in the Camelot subdivision.

Another call came in at 2 a.m. from a resident on Guinevere Lane who reported that a woman was seen running out of the resident’s carport.

When police got on the scene, they saw the woman, Angela Smith, 37, running with a handgun.

Officers also heard gunshots coming from the direction from which she ran.

Smith then broke into a house on Ivanhoe Lane, pointed a gun at the homeowners, took the keys to their vehicle and drove away with it.

Cumberland County deputies and troopers with the Tennessee Highway Patrol began chasing the car.

Smith crashed the vehicle at the intersection of Browntown Road and 70W and when officials approached the vehicle, Smith raised a handgun and a Cumberland County deputy fired, shooting and killing her.

Killed – Jerry Wayne Waller (Fort Worth, TX)

Jerry Wayne Waller1

FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – A grandfather checking on his neighbor is shot and killed by Fort Worth police. The shots rang out early Tuesday morning near Woodhaven Country Club, in east Fort Worth.

Those close to the family say the victim lived nearby and heard his neighbor’s burglar alarm. Neighbor Jerry Wayne Waller then apparently went outside to see what was going on.

The 72-year-old man didn’t even make it to the house across the street before he was shot. He died on his own property.

The elderly man, who was armed at the time, was shot and killed in his own driveway by police responding to a burglary call. “We heard five shots,” Haskin recalled. They were just rapid fire one after the other.”

Speaking on the incident Fort Worth police Cpl. Tracey Knight said, “Officers felt threatened by the man with the handgun and he was shot.”

After the shooting Haskin said, “The police officers were sobbing uncontrollably and very distraught.”

FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) - Police in Fort Worth are investigating a shooting involving one of their own officers. The incident occurred at about 12:45 a.m. on Tuesday morning in the 400 block of Havenwood Lane.

Authorities originally received calls about a burglary in an affluent neighborhood located near the Woodhaven Country Club, in the east part of Fort Worth. Two uniformed patrol officers responded to a home where a security alarm was sounding.

While investigating around the home, officers met up with an adult male who was armed with a handgun. At least one of the officers fired and struck the man, killing him at the scene. But, according to former city council member Becky Haskin, that man was simply a neighbor who was also looking into what may have set off the security alarm.

Waller was shot and killed early Tuesday morning after he went outside to investigate bright lights outside of the bedroom, his wife Kathy told NBC 5 on Tuesday evening.

Armed with a .38-caliber pistol, Waller was apparently shot several times in his rear-facing garage after some sort of miscommunication with police officers.

Officials with the Fort Worth Police Department said officers were in the neighborhood responding to an alarm call; but that call was to a home across the street from the Waller residence.

Kathy said officers told her they thought the alarm call came from her residence.

A Tarrant County grand jury has decided not to indict Fort Worth police officer R.A. Hoeppner for the May 28 fatal shooting of 72-year-old Jerry Waller at his home.

Killed – Theodore Vanosdall (Salida, CO)

male

Theodore Dennis Vanosdall, a multi-state offender and parolee living in Salida, was fatally shot May 26 after firing multiple rounds at police officers at a residence on the 1200 block of H Street.

Vanosdall, a 36 year old white male, was on parole from South Dakota charged with multiple drug, weapon and theft violations and had been living in Salida for about a year.

At approximately 5:50 p.m. May 26, Salida Police Officers responded to a 911 call of a disturbance at 1220 H Street. The resident of the home, an acquaintance of Vanosdall, said Vanosdall was cutting through the front door with a chainsaw, trying to enter the home. Three Salida police officers and a Chaffee County Sheriff’s Deputy responded to the scene. The resident fled through the backdoor.

As officers approached the front door of the residence, Vanosdall shot multiple rounds out of the front windows of the home. Officers took shelter and did not return fire because they did not have a visual of the subject. A Salida police officer and the Chaffee County Sheriff’s deputy went to the back of the house where Vanosdall attempted to flee. Officers commanded Vanosdall to drop his weapon, and the subject responded by firing at the officers. Officers then returned fire, and Vanosdall was fatally wounded. No officers were injured.

Killed – Ajani Mitchell (Columbia, SC)

Ajani Mitchell

According to police department spokesperson Jennifer Timmons, the incident happened in the 5800 block of Conveyor Street near Farrow Road at about 8 p.m. Saturday.

The interim chief of the Columbia Police Department says officers did what they had to do in the deadly shooting of an armed man Saturday night.

The three officers are on administrative leave with pay while the shooting is investigated by SLED.

Investigators say the officers felt in fear of their lives when they shot a man who had returned to his mother’s North Columbia home with a weapon following fight with her.

According to police department spokesperson Jennifer Timmons, the incident happened in the 5800 block of Conveyor Street near Farrow Road at about 8 p.m. Saturday.

Timmons says a woman called police after she and her son, 21-year-old Ajani Mitchell, had a fight at the residence Saturday afternoon. After Mitchell left, his mother called police to pick up an assault rifle she had found in the home.

The woman called authorities later in the evening to report that Mitchell had returned with another weapon, according to Timmons.

When police arrived, they discovered Mitchell behind the home. Police say Mitchell ignored repeated commands to drop the weapon and did not obey.

“The officers were in fear for their lives,” said Acting Police Chief Ruben Santiago. “This individual had a gun.”

Mitchell died on the scene. An autopsy was performed Sunday.

COLUMBIA, SC — A six-person Richland County coroner’s jury ruled Wednesday that the shooting of an armed 21-year-old man by two Columbia police officers was justified.

The jury could have recommended forwarding the case to a county grand jury for criminal charges.

Killed – Jeff Foote (Washington Terrace, UT)

Jeff Foote

A Washington Terrace man was shot and killed by Weber County a sheriff’s deputy early Saturday while police were trying to talk the man out of taking his own life.

An apparently distraught Jeff Foote, 39, placed a 911 call to police just before 1 a.m. and told a dispatcher that he planned to shoot himself, the sheriff’s office said in a news release.

Officers from multiple police agencies went to the home Foote shared with his parents, 110 W. 4600 South, to find him standing in the front yard, brandishing a small handgun.

One Weber County deputy tried to calm Foote and prevent him from attempting suicide. As they spoke, however, Foote apparently discharged his gun and an officer returned fire, Weber County Chief Deputy Klint Anderson said. No other shots were fired.

Foote, who was struck in the neck, was taken to an Ogden-area hospital where he died. His body was transferred to the Utah State Medical Examiner’s Office later Saturday for an autopsy.

Killed – John Valluzzo (Ridgefield, CT)

John Valluzzo

New details about the May 24 shooting on Ridgebury Road, including where the victim was fatally shot and how many shots the officer fired, were revealed yesterday at the state Superior Court in Danbury.

The State Police’s unsealed search warrant application confirms that the victim, John Valluzzo, was shot twice inside his home, reversing  previous reports that Mr. Valluzzo was shot outside in his yard.

In addition, the document states four Ridgefield police officers responded to the scene; just one of them, Officer Jorge Romero, fired two shots from his gun, striking the victim in the torso

Police saw Mr. Valluzzo “walking upright and advancing towards them,” while holding a stainless steel revolver in one of his hands, the affidavit reads.

“Immediately recognizing that Valluzzo was armed with a handgun, Officer Romero ordered Valluzzo at least twice to drop the weapon. Valluzzo failed to drop the weapon and approached to within fifteen feet of the officer.”

The application’s step-by-step account of the events that led to the shooting reveals Lt. Michael Gates received a phone call at 4:45 p.m. from someone in Boca Raton, Florida.

The caller identified herself as Janine Saviano and reported an active domestic dispute involving her cousin, Anna Parille, and Mr. Valluzzo at 423 Ridgebury Road.

Ms. Parille told Ms. Saviano over the phone that Mr. Valluzzo had been drinking “a large quantity of alcohol” and was armed.

“Parille reported to her cousin that Valluzzo was ‘waving a gun around’ and screaming at her,” the affidavit reads.

According to the document, Sgt. Wooster and Officer Romero arrived at 5:02 p.m. and alerted Lt. Gates “to stand by on Ridgebury Road until his backup officer arrived.”

Seven-year veteran Officer Jorge Romero was placed on leave shortly after May 24 when he fired two rounds from his 40-caliber Glock handgun, striking 75-year-old Ridgefield resident John Valluzzo in the torso, fatally wounding him.

Killed – Adolfo Vargas Tovar (San Diego, CA)

male

SAN DIEGO (CNS) – Authorities have identified a National City man killed in an officer-involved shooting in San Diego’s Bay Terraces.

Adolfo Vargas Tovar, 47, was fatally shot in the 7400 block of Woodridge Way about 1:45 p.m. Friday, according to the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office.

San Diego police said Tovar was an armed robbery suspect who shot a Bay Terraces-area resident and drove another resident’s vehicle toward a group of police officers, prompting five officers to open fire.

The officers involved in the shooting were identified as 30-, 28-, 14- and 12-year veterans of the San Diego Police Department and a National City police officer who has been with that agency for six months, according to San Diego police Lt. Jorge Duran.

The events that led to the shooting began about 11:35 a.m. Friday, when officers were called to the Arco gas station at Paradise Valley Road at Meadowbrook Drive, which had been robbed at gunpoint by a man in his 40s who also fired a round into the ceiling, Duran said. A witness told police the suspect got into a white Suzuki sedan and sped away, he said.

The witness followed the suspect to the 7100 block of Paradise Road, where the suspect crashed into a curb, then tried unsuccessfully to set the car on fire by pouring gasoline on it and throwing a Molotov cocktail into the trunk, Duran said. The suspect then ran toward a residential area, he said.

Responding officers saw the suspect enter a home in the 7300 block of Woodbridge Way. Its resident told officers the suspect confronted him in the back yard and shot him in his foot, Duran said. That man was treated by paramedics for a non-life-threatening wound, Duran said.

The suspect then headed to the 7400 block of Gatewood Lane, where he asked a resident for clothing and was given a gray t-shirt before leaving the area, Duran said.

He then went into another home on Woodbridge Way, which officers surrounded. They helped a female resident escape through the bathroom window after she called for help, Duran said. Officers called to the suspect to come out.

Several minutes later, the suspect allegedly drove out of the garage in reverse at a high rate of speed and headed toward officers standing in the street. Duran said the officers feared they were about to be run over and opened fire, striking the suspect, who died at the scene.

Double Shooting – Killed – Thomas Hilger (Billings, MT)

Thomas Hilger

WORDEN — Authorities have identified the victim of an apparent homicide in Worden early Friday morning as Erica Yurian, 22, and the man shot by a sheriff’s deputy as Thomas Hilger, 49.

Both died of gunshot wounds, Sheriff Mike Linder said Saturday. The investigation into the incident is ongoing.

It appears that two deputies made contact with Hilger but only one fired, Linder said. Both service weapons have been collected as evidence, and the lab will help determine which weapon fired the fatal round.

Hilger was owner of The 406 Bar on Main Street. Yurian was known for her athletic prowess, especially on the volleyball court while attending Huntley Project High School. The pair had been dating for about a year, although Yurian’s family members said she had recently ended the relationship.

Hilger was shot in an early-morning confrontation with authorities and was taken to St. Vincent Healthcare, where he died. While investigating that shooting, authorities discovered Yurian’s body in a vehicle. Linder would not say where the vehicle was located.

Deputies were called to Worden at 2:30 a.m. Friday to investigate suspicious behavior in the alley behind The 406 Bar at 2430 Main St. When they arrived, the suspicious vehicle was gone from behind the bar, but they found it elsewhere in Worden. When they began talking with Hilger, who was driving the vehicle, he got out and displayed a gun. One of the deputies fired at him. The deputy who fired his service weapon has not been identified, but a coroner’s inquest will be conducted, Linder said.

Jurors said Sheriff’s Deputy Martin Stuart was justified in shooting 49-year-old, Thomas Hilger, in Worden. Around 3:00 AM on Friday May 24th, deputies said they responded to a call involving Thomas Hilger trying to stage the death of his 22-year-old girlfriend, Erica Yurian. When deputies showed up near the 406 Bar in Worden, Hilger would not comply with officers, and he displayed a gun. That’s when Sheriff’s Deputy, Martin Stuart, fired two shots at Thomas Hilger. On shot was fired into his shoulder and the other went into his back. “The death was justifiable homicide, and the person it was caused by was Martin Stuart. And in the opinion of the jury it was not by criminal means,” Big Horn County Coroner Terry Bullis said.

Medical experts say 22-year-old Erica Yurian died at 10:00 PM on May 23rd from a gunshot wound to the head. Experts said it appeared Hilger had the gun pressed directly to the back of her head during the execution. When deputies responded to the scene hours after the murder, Hilger would not comply with officers, displayed a gun, and Deputy Stuart fired two shots.

Killed – Leonard Benjamin Thomas (Fife, WA)

male

TACOMA, Wash. (AP) – Pierce County Prosecutor Mark Lindquist says a Metro SWAT team member was justified in fatally shooting a Fife man who refused to release his 4-year-old son in a standoff earlier this year.

Lindquist concluded that Lakewood police officer Brian Markert was justified in shooting 30-year-old Leonard Benjamin Thomas on May 23. Lindquist described Markert as an “expert marksman” doing what was necessary to protect the child.

On that May day, Fife police responded to call from Thomas’ mother, who said he had assaulted her. She said she was worried about her grandson.

The standoff began shortly after 10 p.m. when Fife police officers responded to the reports of a domestic violence assault in the 200 block of 55th Avenue East. A woman reported her adult son was highly intoxicated, depressed over the death of a close friend, and would not release his son into her care.

Killed – Rashawn Marquis Brown (Compton, CA)

Rashawn Marquis Brown

COMPTON – Deputies shot and killed a man in Compton after he reportedly pointed a handgun at them during a chase from the scene of a shots-fired call, authorities said today.

The deputy-involved shooting happened around 7:30 p.m. Thursday on East Palmer Street near North Bradfield Avenue, said Deputy Peter Gomez of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Headquarters Bureau.

Around 7:25 p.m., two deputies from the sheriff’s Compton Station went to the intersection of North Bradfield Avenue and San Luis Street to investigate a call of shots fired and saw a black 2000 Pontiac speeding from the area, Gomez said.

They followed the Pontiac, which headed north on Bradfield before turning westbound onto Palmer, which is a dead end, Gomez said.

The suspect got out in front of a residence and, with a handgun in hand, ran down a driveway as the deputies gave chase and ordered him to stop and drop the firearm, he said.

“The suspect then turned toward the deputies and pointed the handgun at (them),” Gomez said. “Fearing for their lives, deputies fired at the suspect, shooting him numerous times.”

The man was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead, Gomez said.

Killed – Theodule LeJeune Jr (Sutton, AK)

male

An Alaska State Trooper shot and killed a Sutton man who fired a gun at law enforcement officers Thursday after refusing to abide by a court order that said he had to leave his home, according to troopers.

Troopers served the domestic-violence protective order to Theodule LeJeune Jr., 58, through a window at his Eska Creek Street house about 3:45 p.m. Wednesday, according to a charging document. LeJeune said he would not leave and “retreated further inside the residence,” a written statement from troopers says.

In an application for the protective order, filed in Palmer court earlier that day, a woman living in the house with her children said she was afraid of LeJeune and that his constant threats had escalated since January. His more-recent menacing turned more physical when he pushed her into a freezer, she wrote.

“He has many guns and has threatened me with them and has threatened to shoot any police officers that come — we are at this point terrified of him,” she wrote. “Mr. LeJeune has severe paranoia about many things.”

On Thursday evening at 6:23 pm, SERT and CNT personnel returned to the residence and contacted LeJeune by phone. LeJeune hung up on them.

According to the dispatch, SERT and CNT personnel continued to attempt to negotiate with LeJeune and also “attempted multiple times to disarm LeJeune with less lethal tools.”  A short time later, LeJeune came out of the home with a firearm. Troopers say that using a Tactical Response Vehicle, SERT personnel attempted again with additional “less lethal tools” to disarm Lejeune. It is unknown what less lethal tools were used.

It was at that time that LeJeune opened fire on the troopers. A trooper returned fire, striking LeJeune. LeJeune died of his injuries at the scene. Next of kin were notified.

Killed – Terrance Rodney Luukkonen (Superior, MN)

Terrance Rodney Luukkonen1

As police identified the suspect in Superior’s first homicide of the year Thursday, FOX 21 was learning who the victim, Terry Luukkonen, was and how his family is remembering him.

Police say the suspect is Leonardo, Padilla, 41, of Arizona, who is also a 20-year veteran and former police officer.

The story behind this alleged homicide, is a love triangle, gone horribly wrong, according to officials.

“The victim in yesterday’s fatal shooting incident has been identified as 46-year-old Terrance Rodney Luukkonen of Duluth, Minnesota. Terrance was shot while he was sitting inside his vehicle in the parking lot of Genesis Attachments, where he was employed,” said Deputy Chief Nicholas Alexander, of the Superior Police Department.

The criminal complaint says Padilla was upset that Terrance and his fiancé were continuing their relationship.  Padilla even made threatening statements, like “I want to kill him,” and “I can’t live without you,” Alexander said.

Killed – Thomas Bean (Toledo, OH)

Thomas Bean3

A North Toledo man was shot and killed early today after he reportedly pointed a shotgun at two officers.

The man shot dead in an encounter with Toledo police officers early Thursday has been identified.

Thomas Bean, 43, of 1029 Page St., was shot multiple times just before 1 a.m. by Officer Tom Reinhart.

Officer Reinhart and Officer Jason Picking, both assigned to the gang unit, were on patrol in the 1000 block of Page when they saw Bean standing over a woman, pointing a 12-gauge shotgun at her face, police said.

The woman, Valerie Williams, 27, was lying on the ground in front of Bean’s home.

Officers got out of the car and told Bean several times to drop the gun, police said. Bean, instead, pointed the gun at the officers.

Bean ran back inside the Page Street home; he was found dead inside a living room.

Police said Bean’s shotgun was not loaded, but several live rounds were found in the kitchen.

Killed – Ibragim Todashev (Orlando, FL)

Ibragim Todashev

Ibragim Todashev (September 22, 1985 – May 22, 2013) was a Chechen American former mixed martial artist and a friend of the alleged Boston Marathon bomber and former amateur boxer, Tamerlan Tsarnaev. He was shot dead by an FBI agent on May 22, 2013, when he allegedly attacked the agent during an interview by the FBI and local police regarding the April 15, 2013 bombings and a triple homicide that took place in Waltham, Massachusetts on September 11, 2011. The investigators involved in the incident said that Todashev implicated both himself and Tamerlan Tsarnaev in the Waltham murders before he was killed.

On the afternoon of May 22, 2013, law enforcement officers, including an FBI special agent from the Boston field office and two Massachusetts State Police (MSP) troopers, arrived at Ibragim Todashev’s apartment in Orlando, Florida, and interviewed Todashev for approximately eight hours in his living room. According to Todashev’s father Abdulbaki, the questioning took place two days before his scheduled flight to Russia; Abdulbaki’s American attorney Eric Ludin said Ibragim had undergone multiple prior interrogations in Florida and was promised this would be the last one, and had canceled a planned trip to Chechnya earlier in May on the advice of the FBI.[13][20] Todashev was questioned by the FBI agent regarding the 2011 Waltham murders and his connections to the Boston bombings suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev;[5][21] both Todashev and Tsarnaev had trained at the Wai Kru MMA Gym and lived close to each other in Cambridge, Massachusetts.[9] The investigators later said that Todashev implicated both himself and Tamerlan Tsarnaev in the murders during the questioning soon after midnight. They reported that Todashev was beginning to write a formal statement when he asked to take a break, and then suddenly attacked the agent.[5][21] Todashev was shot multiple times and killed.[5][22][23]

Officials initially claimed that Todashev picked up a knife or attempted to grab a samurai sword from the wall, but later said that it was unclear whether this was the case; one source said it was “a knife or a pipe or something”. A number of later reports said that he was unarmed.[22][23][24][25] Some earlier accounts implied that the FBI agent was alone with Todashev at the time of the shooting.[23] Following Todashev’s death, his father showed photographs to reporters in Moscow that he said demonstrated his son had been shot at point-blank range in the head.[26] According to the account of an unnamed law enforcement official, Todashev knocked the interrogating agent to the ground with a table, and then lunged at him with a metal pole, or possibly a broomstick.[27] In this account there was one detective in the room—who did not fire—besides the FBI agent.[27] The agent sustained minor injuries requiring stitches. An account given by former FBI deputy director John Miller said[28] that an MSP trooper “noticed that Todashev was getting more and more agitated. Rather than alert the agent and tip off Todashev that they sensed something was about to happen, [the trooper] texted the agent and [wrote], ‘Be careful, I think this guy is becoming more agitated’. As the agent looked down at that text, that’s when the table went over, Todashev came over the table and picked up apparently a metal broom handle or some object like that [...] and charged the agent. The agent [w]as knocked back, came up with his gun, fired two or three times. Todashev came back at him and he fired more times.” Authorities have confirmed that the agent fired six times.[28]

A police report states that the FBI confiscated “some kind of stick” along with a computer and some other items.[20] The FBI established a post-shooting incident-review team to investigate the shooting.[21] Todashev’s body was flown to Russia on June 20 by his American widow and his father;[29] he was buried in a Muslim cemetery in Grozny on June 29.[30] On July 16, the release of Todashev’s autopsy report, completed by a Florida medical examiner’s office, was blocked by the FBI because the “case was still under active investigation.”[31]

Killed – Julian Dawkins (Alexandria, VA)

Julian Dawkins

An altercation between an off-duty Arlington County Sheriff’s deputy and a man in Alexandria Wednesday morning left a 22-year-old man shot to death, police say.

The incident happened shortly after 12:45 Wednesday morning in the 100 block of Lynhaven Drive in Alexandria. Police say their investigation shows that both the victim and the deputy were on foot at the time.

The deputy is identified as Craig Patterson, a 17-year veteran of the Arlington County Sheriff’s office. The victim is identified as Julian Dawkins.

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (WUSA9) — A former Arlington County sheriff’s deputy was sentenced Thursday for the shooting death of an Alexandria man.

Last December, a jury found Craig Patterson guilty of voluntary manslaughter in the shooting death of Julian Dawkins. Thursday, a judge imposed the jury’s recommended six-year prison sentence.

At about 12:30 a.m. on May 22, Dawkins’ girlfriend texted him to stop drinking, according to court testimony reported by the Washington Post. That’s about the time Dawkins encountered Patterson, who was new to the neighborhood.

The two got into an argument over who had a right to be in the neighborhood, and Patterson claimed Dawkins came at him and chased him with a knife.

A witness said she heard Patterson tell Dawkins that he’d be back.

The prosecution said Patterson left and went to get his gun, handcuffs and badge. They say he came back and intentionally killed Dawkins because he was angry over being disrespected. That break in action when Patterson left is key to the case against him, said prosecutors.

Killed – Joshua A. Johnson (Norfolk, VA)

Joshua Johnson

Johnson and Virgie May Hairston, 21, tried to cash a stolen check at the Wells Fargo at 21st Street and Colonial Avenue about 2:40 p.m. Monday. A teller called 911 to report the incident while the suspects’ Mercedes was still in the bank’s drive-through lane. Two officers arrived within minutes.

The first officer got out of his car on Colonial Avenue and went toward the drive-through lanes. The second officer blocked the Mercedes with his squad car, before getting out.

As the first officer walked behind the Mercedes, Johnson put the car in reverse and accelerated, throwing him onto the trunk as the car continued, hitting curbs and bushes.

The other officer, standing in front of the car, began firing at Johnson after losing sight of his colleague, fearing he was behind or under the car. Johnson, of the 300 block of W. 27th St., died at the scene.

Hairston, of the 500 block of W. 26th St., was found uninjured on the passenger floor of the Mercedes. She was arrested and charged with conspiring to commit larceny.

Killed – Freddy Batt Sosa (Tucson, AZ)

male

A man armed with a BB gun who was fighting with his sister was shot and killed by two Tucson police officers Saturday night on the south side.

The man was identified as Freddy Batt Sosa.

Sosa, 22, was fatally wounded while at El Pueblo Regional Center, 101 W. Irvington Road, said Sgt. Chris Widmer, a Tucson Police Department spokesman.

The shooting happened shortly after 7 p.m. when Sgt. Will Corrales and Officer Jesus Tapia, who were in one patrol car, were dispatched to where a man and woman were physically fighting near the parking lot of the center, Widmer said.

During the investigation, detectives found out that Sosa was fighting with his sister.

Detectives also found out that Sosa was armed with a black Stinger P311 BB gun, which looks like a handgun, Widmer said. Some such BB guns have orange tips; the one Sosa had did not.

Killed – Naim Keith Labaki (Evanston, WY)

Naim Keith Labaki1

An Evanston man was killed following a high-speed chase and shootout with local authorities Saturday afternoon, according to Evanston Police.

Local authorities say the incident’s flashpoint occurred shortly after 2 p.m. when Naim “Keith” Labaki, 43, fired a single shot in front of his residence on the 800 block of Uinta Street. Labaki then reportedly fled in his white 1995 Ford Explorer to a Sports World store 14nearby, where he demanded an additional weapon.

Labaki left when employees refused his demands, then drove his vehicle to the front of the store and fired another shot inside. No one at Labaki’s residence or in Sports World was injured, police say.

Local law enforcement pursued Labaki in a high-speed chase until he collided with an unmarked police vehicle at about 2:40 p.m.

Labaki then leveled his rifle at an Evanston police officer from inside his vehicle, a press release states. The officer and a Uinta County Sheriff’s deputy responded by shooting at the suspect.

Labaki was hit, and immediately transported to Evanston Regional Hospital, where we was pronounced dead.

Killed – Brent E. Brozek (Madison, WI)

Brent E. Brozek

Three Madison Police Department officers involved in the fatal shooting of Brent E. Brozek on May 17 have been cleared by the department.

A summary of the Professional Standards and Internal Affairs review, released on Thursday, said Officers Ryan Orvis, Ryan Finnegan and Scott Templeton have been exonerated regarding the department’s policies on use of deadly force and use of non-deadly force.

Brozek, 43, was shot and killed May 17 outside his Far East Side condominum when he charged at the officers while carrying a sword.

Brozek had been in a standoff with police earlier in the day when he refused to be evicted out of his foreclosed home.

At around 9 p.m., the man emerged from the residence, and officers tried to engage him in conversation, according to a statement by police. However, he brandished a large sword and charged at officers, who first tried to stop him by firing non-lethal bean-bag rounds, police said.

Whether he was hit by any of those bean-bag rounds was not immediately determined and will be part of the DCI investigation, DeSpain said.

The man made a second charge and more than one officer fired multiple rounds at the man, police said.

Killed – Misty Michelle Mullins (Raleigh, NC)

Misty Michelle Mullins

RALEIGH, N.C. — A Wake County deputy fatally shot a woman Friday afternoon after she charged at him and two other deputies with a knife, Sheriff Donnie Harrison said.

Someone called 911 at 11:45 a.m. to report that a woman was breaking into a home at 6232 Melbourne Road and was threatening the caller with a garden rake, Harrison said. When deputies arrived 10 minutes later, they found a woman breaking into a second home at 6222 Melbourne Road.

Misty Michelle Mullins and her boyfriend rented that home until a couple weeks ago, the property owner said. The pair had broken up, and Mullins was no longer listed on the lease.

The man had a protective order against Mullins, 33, saying she had assaulted him on April 25 and had threatened him with a knife and a baseball bat, according to court records. The order bars her from the 6222 Melbourne Road home and the man’s workplace.

Deputies tried to persuade Mullins to come out of the home. When she wouldn’t, they entered.

Mullins then charged at the deputies with a machete, witnesses said, and they used a stun gun to try to subdue her. When that failed three times, Deputy Gabriel Romero shot and killed her.

Killed – Tony Nim (Alhambra, CA)

male

ALHAMBRA– Three police officers who shot and killed a mentally ill man carrying a large knife in the lobby of the police department earlier this month have returned to active duty, officials said Wednesday.

The officers involved in the May 17 shooting were Officer Carlos Donato, Officer Brandon Cardella and Sgt. Edward Elizalde. Donato has been with the department since 2006, Elizalde since 1995 and Cardella since 1999, said Lt. Dave Coleman of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau.

Khan Tony Nim, 35, of Alhambra, was shot and killed by the three officers around 7:30 a.m. on May 17 after he walked into the department lobby holding a large black backpack.

Five officers responded to the scene and tried to communicate with Nim, but he was unresponsive. When Nim produced a 12-inch kitchen carving knife, Coleman said, three officers fired. At least one officer in the lobby did have a stun gun, but was unable to deploy it.

Double Shooting – Killed – Andrea Rebello (Uniondale, NY)

Andrea Rebello1

UNIONDALE (WABC) – A Hofstra University student and a suspect were killed during an apparent home invasion robbery in Uniondale overnight Friday.

The victim has been identified as Andrea Rebello of Westchester County.

The shots rang out inside an off-campus house on California Avenue just after 2:30 a.m.

Police responded to a report of a home invasion robbery in a house where three female students and one male student live. Authorities say the incident began when an armed man with a black ski mask forced his way inside.

One of the victims was permitted to leave the home, apparently to withdraw money from an ATM, and she called 911.

Somehow, gunfire erupted after police arrived. One responding officer said the scene resemebed a hostage situation, with the suspect pointing a gun at the heads of his victims.

Rebello, and the suspect, who police say was not a student, were both killed.

Authorities have said an officer answering a call about a home invasion at Rebello’s Uniondale rental home fired his gun after confronting Dalton Smith, a 30-year-old ex-convict from Hempstead.

At the time, Smith had a gun to Rebello’s head while holding her in a headlock, according to authorities. The officer fired after Smith pointed a gun at him, and the gunfire struck and killed Rebello and Smith, according to police, who haven’t publicly revealed the officer’s name. Law enforcement sources have identified the officer as Nikolas Budimlic.

The Nassau County cop who fatally shot a Hofstra University student during a terrifying home-invasion standoff is “inconsolable,” sources told The Post yesterday.

“He blames himself and keeps replaying it in his mind,” a police source said. “He is torn up about the poor girl.”

James Genda

AKRON — University of Akron’s police chief told FOX 8 News that a 64-year-old man, who was killed during a traffic stop, had a pellet gun.

The chief said the gun looked like a 45 caliber semi-automatic.

A University of Akron officer fired his weapon during a traffic stop Thursday morning, according to The University of Akron.

Around 11 a.m., the officer pulled over the vehicle on Wolf Ledges Road near the Akron Main Post Office for improper registration.

When the officer asked the man for his driver’s license and registration, the officer said it appeared the driver pulled out a handgun, which turned out to be a pellet gun.

That’s when the officer fired at the driver.

Killed – Justin Cairns (Spokane, WA)

Justin Cairns1

SPOKANE, Wash. — Two people are dead following two shootings early Thursday in Spokane. Police said it started around 1:30 a.m. on the 1500 block of West Grace near Maple Street.

A call came into dispatchers reporting a man had been hit by a car.  When officers arrived, they found a man lying in the road with gunshot wounds to the chest.

Medics took the victim, Cyrus Jones, to the hospital with life-threatening injuries but he later died. The Spokane County Medical Examiner ruled his death a homicide. The autopsy report stated that Jones dead from gunshot wounds.

Police tracked the man accused of killing Jones  to a home in the Nine Mile Falls area about 45 minutes after they arrived at the scene on Grace. They used information on the suspect’s car to track him down to a home along the 22000 block of West Charles Road.

Officers observed a vehicle at the location matching the description of the vehicle used by the homicide suspect.  Investigators said police believed the suspect was still armed and began setting up a perimeter around the house.

Authorities contacted the suspect outside of the house. Police Chief Frank Straub said the suspect came outside and shut off the lights. Investigators said the man failed to follow commands when he was confronted by the officers.

During the incident, shots were fired by the officers. Those shots hit the suspect and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Justin Cairns, 21, died early Thursday morning after being shot by police outside his Nine Mile Falls home. Police said Cairns shot and killed Cyrus C. Jones, 33, on West Grace Avenue earlier that morning.

Killed – Louis Squires (Springfield, MA)

Louis Squires

PRINGFIELD (WGGB) — One man is dead after being shot by police Wednesday.

It all began as a domestic related incident Wednesday morning, just before 6:00, on Albemarle Street.

Springfield Police Sgt. John Delaney says that 27-year-old Ethel McCreary had gone to the home of 44-year-old Louis Squires to confront him about reportedly seeing another woman.

Delaney adds that McCreary was upset and threw a cinder block into the window of his rental car, slashed his tires, and keyed the car.

Witnesses tell police that when Squires confronted McCreary, who police say was his estranged girlfriend, he allegedly went into that car and pulled out a shotgun.

Squires then allegedly turned and started opening fire on McCreary. She ran and sought cover behind a nearby car.

As the gunfire rang out, officers were alerted to the situation after “ShotSpotter” went off indicating gunfire near 93 Albemarle Street.

Officers responded and were met by gunfire from Squires, with some bullets hitting a cruiser. They quickly retreated back up the street and called for backup, while Louis allegedly continued to fire at them.

Backup units arrived and were finally able to find McCreary, who was not injured, and move her to safety.

Delaney says that Squires then moved toward the backyards of homes on Braddock Street and continued to open fire on the officers, who returned fire.

Squires was hit by gunfire and police were able to move in and get Squires into custody. At the same time, first aid was rendered.

Squires was taken to Baystate Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
