Richard Townsend (3002)



11/25/2005: Police were called on Townsend as he "mowed the street" and signalled to passing cars in an irrational way. They found him a short distance away with a short metal rod. Reportedly combative, Townsend continued to wave the road after being commanded to drop it, was the target of an attempted Tasing, and then was fatally shot four times in the chest at close range. http://www.gazettetimes.com/news/local/affidavit-gives-details-of-shooting/article_b704cd41-979d-52e0-ba5e-e5eba0bd53b5.html
