Geoffrey Schaub (4098)

2/6/2008: Schaub was a convicted child molester and church janitor. During an afternoon confrontation with two officers "assigned to perform surveillance outside his home," he is said to have aimed a single-shot flare gun draped under some kind of cloth at them. This was enough to cause the officers to shoot and kill him. They subsequently found child pornography on his computer.
