Cornel Young

This brings up painful memories of the death of Sergeant Cornel Young Jr., shot in 2000 by other officers who had mistaken him for a suspect.

NEW YORK (AP) — A plainclothes policeman who drew his gun while chasing someone he had found rummaging through his car was shot and killed by a fellow officer who was driving by and saw the pursuit, the police commissioner said.

Sorry to see this happen again, and my condolences to the family of Officer Omar J. Edwards, and to the family of Sergeant Cornel Young Jr., who have not forgotten.
