Eric Tyrone Clements (14692)

10/23/2000: An Akron SWAT team officer kicked in the bedroom door of a West Akron home, not knowing the man he was looking for was lying on a bed inside with a gun aimed at the door. The door gave way and the man on the bed fired a shot that flew past the officer's head, lodging in the steel door jamb. Another bullet caught the officer in his heavy bullet-proof vest. Officer Mitchell Hamidi fired two shots, killing Clements.
