Jonathan Ayers (4953)



9/1/2009: Baptist minister Ayers had given a ride to a young woman in the small suburb of Toccoa, then stopped at a convenience store when he was threatened by armed men emerging from a black Escalade. The woman was a narcotics target, and the armed men were undercover officers who fatally shot Ayers in the liver as he tried to flee. His last words to paramedics were "Who shot me?" His pregnant widow reached a settlement with the county for $2,305,352. http://www.ajc.com/news/news/jury-awards-widow-23-million-in-pastors-wrongful-d/ndW2M/
