Keith Vidal (8700)

1/5/2014: Keith Vidal was an 18-year-old schizophrenic whose parents called police because he was having a violent episode, as they had done on many previous occasions. Two officers arrived and attempted to calm Vidal, who was holding a small screw driver. A third officer, Detective Bryon Vassey arrived and allegedly ordered the officers to tase Vidal. Then Vassey shot Vidal in the chest. A grand jury indicted Vassey for voluntary manslaughter in February 2015.
