There have been at least nine fatal officer-involved shootings in Allegheny County since 2014, according to records:
Christopher Thompkins, 57 – Was shot to death by Pittsburgh police in January after police responded to calls about a burglary and said Thompkins began firing shots at them while they attempted to gain entry to the home. Thompkins' wife told police they thought the officers were someone trying to commit a home invasion.
Raymone Davis, 21 – Shot in December after police said he attempted to rob a bank on Mt. Washington. A Pittsburgh police officer who was working secondary employment at the bank shot Davis. It was later determined that the gun Davis was carrying had one round in the chamber.
Charles Hull, 56 – Shot to death in January by police after responding to a 911 call from a woman in Penn Hills who said Hull, her boyfriend, was outside with a rifle, threatening to kill himself.
Adrian Williams, 29 – Shot to death in April in Wilkinsburg after police spotted a gun in a parked car outside a club in Homewood. Officers said Williams got into the car and sped off, eventually jumping out of the car and running between houses. Officers said he had a gun, pointed it at them and refused to drop it, when they opened fire.
