Edward Ned Jr. (2501)



11/8/2004: This is the second shooting of a mentally ill person Officer Nicosia has been involved in. In November 2004, he was placed on administrative leave along with Officers Richard Harrell and Colby Thompson in connection with the shooting death of 48-year-old Edward Ned Jr. State police conducted the investigation, and none of the officers was indicted. Ned reportedly tried to attack officers. As the situation escalated, he was given oral commands, and pepper spray and a Taser were used before he was shot. http://www.kplctv.com/story/2538380/police-kill-man-with-mental-illness
