Charles W. Wittland (2952)



10/19/2005: Police had contact with Wittland for at least half an hour in a public park setting, long enough to gather indications of his unstable mental health. When at last Wittland threatened four officers with what was described as a steak knife, he was fatally shot. A state director of the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill called for a full investigation, but neither officer was charged. http://www.delawareonline.com/article/20061107/NEWS/103220003/Suspect-shot-death-by-city-police?odyssey=nav|head
