Jerry Brown (9313)

7/1/2014: Brown was a suspected prescription-drug dealer. During an undercover drug deal, the detective bought a "large" amount of pills from Brown outside the tire shop. When the deal was completed, detectives waiting "in gear" moved in to arrest him. Brown was reportedly shot because he would not show his hands. The Pasco Sheriff's office justified the shooting as "any failure to comply indicates a threat." Family and friends organized protests of the shooting.
