Ishmael Muhammad (7517)

1/28/2013: Officers responded to a report that Muhammed had assaulted his girlfriend. He barricaded himself inside the apartment and using a machete kept a 2-year-old and a disabled 26-year-old as hostages. Officials report that Muhammad “was obviously under the influence of some drugs.” After a standoff of a few hours he was fatally shot twice when his waving of the machete prompted officers to fear for the lives of the hostages.
