Frederick Devon McAllister (4087)

1/31/2008: Police shot McAllister to death after a high-speed vehicle chase which came to an end with McAllister's vehicle crashing into a tree on the playground of the Success Village residential development. The shooting officer's account describes a confused foot chase and series of events after the car crash, with the officer's sight impaired. Although the exonerating report makes much of McAllister's drug dealing and his possession of a loaded pistol in the car, he had been mistaken for another person, he was fleeing unarmed when he was shot, and did not verbally or physically threaten the officer. The family later filed a wrongful death suit.
