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. http://www.silive.com/news/index.ssf/2008/06/retired_cops_murder_trial_will.html
