Ali Altug (579)

4/19/2001: Sgt. Robert "Woody" Haywood said he shot Ali when lunged at him with the knife and was in fear for his life. But Ali's father, Reha, who witnessed the shooting in his kitchen, said Ali was only a threat to himself. The boy had a history of mental illness and had underwent drug rehabilitation. Haywood had been diagnosed as suffering from a panic disorder. Parents Reha and Sande Altug received a $1.65 million settlement from the city after filing a civil complaint. Haywood left the department but was never charged with a crime.
