Adam Boston (118)



4/26/2000: On April 26, 2000, Adam Boston and Darryl Lloyd Berkley allegedly robbed Jerry Comer's BP gas station. After they left the station, Comer called the police and began following after them at a distance. Boston and Berkley were detained by deputy Barbara Valor several blocks away. The deputy was handcuffing Berkley when he began struggling with Valor. According to Gregg Walker, spokesman for the King County Sheriff's Office, Boston was not involved in the struggle with a sheriff's deputy. The deputy's gun went off in the struggle and Jerry Comer, who had come up right before the altercation, shot with his personal weapon as well. Adam Boston was fatally shot. The sheriff's office believes that the bullet from his body came from Jerry Comer's gun. http://community.seattletimes.nwsource.com/archive/?date=20000427&slug=4017767
