Illuminado Lopez (6187)



7/29/2011: Officers shot and killed Illuminado Lopez, 44, of Cleveland, who was drunk, depressed and wielding a butcher knife in the street near his home on West 52nd Street. Lopez refused orders to drop the knife, and continued to act aggressively after he was shot with a Taser, so the officers gunned him down. Family members said Lopez never threatened the officers, but only threatened to kill himself if police didn'€t shoot him. http://www.cleveland.com/court-justice/index.ssf/2014/05/cleveland_police_officers_kill.html
