Steven Vitale (3175)

4/10/2006: Apparently as the result of road rage, a former 20-year NYPD officer tracked down and fatally shot Vitale, a retired 21-year Port Authority Police Department veteran, as Vitale left his SUV for Chinese food. The shooter then barricaded himself in his house in an extended drunken standoff with a cache of weapons that included homemade grenades. The shooter was safely talked out to face murder charges.
