Zagar, known by the police to be mentally ill, called 911 to say there was a man with a knife on his porch. When Officers Clyde Brandenburger and William Gorman arrived, Zagar pointed a cordless drill battery pack at the ground then placed it under his chin. When he allegedly pointed it at the officers, Brandenburger, who said Zagar's action was "suicide by police', shot him 4 times and Gorman 8. Zagar's family sued. In April 2007 it took a jury 10 minutes to declare the shooting justified. In 1999 Zagar had done the same thing but the police simply persuaded him to drop the object and took him to the hospital.

  • Gunshot
  • Deadly force

According to police, patrolmen E.B. Walters and D.G. Pierson tried to stop a Geo Tracker on WV10 in Oceana on suspicion of DUI. The officers called state police and off-duty OPD officers, Christopher Spears and Jeffery Barlow, for assistance when the driver, James Harrison, allegedly refused to stop. Harrison turned onto Huff Creek Hollow and then drove into the woods. Police said they used an all-terrain vehicle to continue the pursuit, though Spears and Barlow were on foot. Around 2 a.m., Spears and Barlow saw Harrison's vehicle in the woods. The officers opened fire when Harrison allegedly attempted to ram them. Passenger Steven Rollins was killed. Harrison was wounded. Barlow and Spears were charged with second degree murder, but Logan Circuit Judge Eric O'Briant signed an order dismissing the charges in August 2001. In January 2002, Barlow was indicted for voluntary manslaughter and unlawful assault. Spears was indicted for accessory before the fact to both charges. Barlow is now listed as the chief of police in Oceana, so presumably he wasn't found guilty.

A deputy sheriff in Georgetown County, South Carolina, observed Martin in a place that made her suspect he was planning to dump trash illegally. When she approached to investigate, Martin fled in his truck. A second deputy saw Martin about fifteen minutes later and began pursuing him. This vehicle chase culminated at an intersection where Dishong and another deputy set up a roadblock. The deputies assert that when Martin reached the roadblock, he rammed Dishong's vehicle, backed up, collided with the vehicle again, backed up a second time, and then drove forward toward Dishong's vehicle once more. Martin's wife alleges that Martin collided with Dishong's vehicle accidentally and then tried to turn away from the roadblock. It is undisputed that Dishong fired several shots at Martin during these events, that the other two deputies fired at his tires, and that a shot fired by Doug Dishong caused Martin's death.

Police shot and killed Vincent "Vinny" Smith after he'd reportedly killed Todd Widman, 21, a part-time Brown County sheriff's deputy, then shot at officers who'd tracked him to a ditch with the help of a dog. Smith, the son of a Buffalo, NY police lieutenant, had reportedly taken his mother's car, and his father's personal handgun early Tuesday morning, and then abandoned the car in Missouri, just short of the Kansas state line. Before Widman was shot, another deputy had responded to a report that Smith was walking along Rt 73 just south of the Nebraska line at around 6 p.m., but didn't see him. About an hour later, Widman radioed in that he'd found Smith, and was taking him to the sheriff's office in Hiawatha. About 15 minutes later, Widman radioed again saying he'd been shot. Widman had been shot in the back after placing Smith in the back of the patrol car, and died soon afterward at a hospital. About 50 deputies and KHP officers responded to the area and located Smith two hours later. Shots were reportedly exchanged, though no one was hit. An hour later, just before 7 p.m., three officers with dogs tracked Smith to a dry creek bed beside a Walmart on the edge of town. Smith allegedly jumped up and fired at them before he was killed by return fire. Brown County Prosecutor Kevin Hill concluded the officers were justified.

Eugene K. Pitchford Jr., who was homeless and had a history of mental health issues, died of asphyxiation as three officers used a chokehold, pepper spray and nightsticks on him. Police had responded to a recycling center when an employee called saying that Pitchford became upset when he tried to turn in a bag of aluminum cans and was told the center was closed. Pitchford ran, and the officers chased and tackled him. During the ensuing struggle, Pitchford was pepper sprayed and repeatedly struck with a baton, according to police reports. A fourth officer helped handcuff Pitchford, who fell unconscious and died. A coroner's jury decided that Pitchford's death was accidental, but said it was impossible to tell what caused the death. "There's no way of proving what caused the asphyxia, whether it's from the weight of the officers or the agitation during the foot chase," Peoria County Coroner Dan Heinz said.
