Jason Mathew Delaware (1091)

5/16/2002: Steve Ecker, a veteran SAU sniper, lay in the bushes across a small courtyard from the apartment of Jason Delaware, a man who had threatened to kill himself and one of his mental-health counselors. In the darkness, Delaware apparently spotted the red glow of Ecker's infrared flashlight and fired, striking the building near him. Ecker shifted position but Delaware fired again, this time directly at the partially concealed officer. Ecker shot back, striking Delaware in the bridge of the nose, killing him instantly. http://www.phoenixnewtimes.com/2003-06-05/news/blue-crush/full/
