Carroll Carter Oakes (3216)

5/17/2006: Reportedly Oakes had been drinking for three days and had expressed a desire to die. Police responding to a 911 call encountered him at a shopping mall, where he refused to leave his vehicle, and refused to allow police to search the vehicle. After some verbal back-and-forth, Oakes made a threatening gesture as if retrieving a gun, and he was fatally shot. A gun was found in the car.
