Cesar Maldonado (4691)

3/20/2009: Maldonado broke into the home of a county sheriff's major as the officer was getting ready for work and attacked him. The major responded by shooting the unarmed Maldonado to death. While his motive was unclear, the major's home had been the target of a burglary just months before. A police review held that the major was off-duty and the state's castle doctrine justified the killing. http://articles.sun-sentinel.com/2009-03-25/news/0903240551_1_fatal-shooting-intruder-victim-and-two
