Alonzo Heyward (4881)



7/18/2009: Distraught from a breakup and after hours of drinking and apparent indecision, Heyward walked around his neighborhood with his .44-caliber Magnum rifle around 4 a.m.. Six officers came to the scene, attempted to Tase Heyward with no effect, heard him express suicidal intentions, then began shooting when his muzzle swung more-or-less towards them. Officers fired 59 bullets and caused 43 wounds. Heyward's death is cited as an example of "contagious fire". http://www.timesfreepress.com/news/2010/aug/08/police-files-show-details-year-old-shooting-death/
