Marcus Lane Cass (7369)

12/13/2012: As co-owner of Abilene Gold Exchange Cass was visited by two plainclothes officers who appeared in bulletproof vests to serve a warrant. The police account describes Cass flourishing a gun during the visit, increasingly uncooperative and then threatening, to the point where they felt compelled to shoot him to death. A federal lawsuit filed by his family contends, among other things, that the police account does not match the event's timeline.
