Mauricio Cruz (4712)



4/8/2009: Cruz irrationally claimed to own the small market where he was a regular customer, and that he was also an immigration agent. His behavior led to a physical struggle with a local officer in which Cruz gained the upper hand, beating the cop with a flower pot then pistol-whipping him with his own gun. A passing firefighter came to the officer's aid, and Cruz ended up fatally shot. http://articles.sun-sentinel.com/2009-04-09/news/0904080497_1_police-officer-officer-s-gun-officer-shot
