Sean Bell Murder Trial

In 2006, Sean Bell and two other men were shot fifty times by New York City Police officers outside of Queens, New York, nightclub. The officers, who were staking out the nightclub, believed a passenger in Bell's car pulled a gun and police opened fire, killing Bell and severely wounding two others. Three of the five officers faced charges including reckless endangerment and manslaughter, but would be found not guilty. (Photo: Samson Styles/BET.com)
