Timothy Stansbury

In January 2004, a 19-year-old unarmed New York City man, Timothy Stansbury, was shot and killed by a police officer who was patrolling the rooftop of a Brooklyn apartment building. The officer, Richard Neri, said Stansbury pushed the rooftop door open, startling the officer and causing his to accidentally shoot and kill Stansbury. A grand jury eventually found the shooting to be accidental. A year later Neri was elected to a post in the police union.
