Marquis Barker (3994)



11/21/2007: Barker had worked for the county as a jail officer for 18 years. Barker's wife called police, describing him as mentally disturbed and irrational. Officers responded, finding him holding an apparent weapon and asking to be shot. He then somehow stole a cruiser and led police on a half-mile pursuit. He was shot and killed. His weapon had been a pellet gun. http://www.commonwealthmagazine.org/Programs/Clearing-the-cops/~/media/Files/Commonwealth%20Magazine/Clearing%20the%20cops/Marquis%20Barker_Suffolk%20District%20Attorney%20letter%20to%20Boston%20police%20commissioner.ashx
