Sasha A. Yuksel (3315)

7/24/2006: Following a traffic stop, Yuksel physically assaulted a state trooper while the trooper made several attempts to control the situation with a Taser and with pepper spray. With dried blood on his knuckles, Yuksel had reportedly assaulted his mother and his stepfather earlier that day. Yuksel broke the trooper's nose and repeatedly reached for his weapons before the trooper gut-shot him once, after which he continued to struggle. He died later that evening from internal bleeding.
