Corey Ward (1185)

7/14/2002: An undercover police officer shot and killed Ward after claiming that he failed to stop the SUV he was driving and fired in self-defense. Ward's death prompted protests from community members, who said Ward was merely driving his mother's SUV with a group of friends and the officer had not identified himself. In 2005, the officer was indicted on murder charges but was later granted immunity by a judge in 2010.
