Bernard King (5321)

4/9/2010: A deputy struck up a conversation with transient King at a Citgo station in the early morning hours, a conversation police described as "consensual in nature". While talking, though, King revealed that he was carrying drug paraphernalia and a knife. The deputy tried to confiscate those, got punched in the face, tried to Taser King without success, chased him about 300 feet across the parking lot, and shot him to death.
