Nicholas Alan Ungar (6639)

2/9/2012: Ungar, who had earlier smoked methamphetamine and been in an armed struggle with his father, barricaded himself inside a motel room with a female hostage and began firing shots in the air, leading to a standoff with police. After several hours and fruitless negotiations, an officer fired and hit Ungar, who claimed he had multiple weapons and more hostages in the room. A later investigation found that the shooting was justified.
