Daniel Alain Vail (7451)



1/10/2013: Frederick County Sheriff's deputies arrived at the suspect's home to execute a search and seizure warrant looking for evidence from a home invasion robbery. Deputies used a flash-bang diversionary device on entering, and found Daniel Alain Vail in his bedroom holding a gun. He refused to drop it when told; Deputy First Class Charles Zang and Deputy First Class Kevin Riffle fired a total of 18 shots, killing Vail. A grand jury found the deputies actions were justified. http://www.fredericknewspost.com/locations/local/frederick_county/grand-jury-use-of-force-justified-in-daniel-vail-shooting/article_04bf0da2-4e3b-11e3-8df4-001a4bcf6878.html
