Kendrec McDade Wasn't the First: 6 More Controversial Police Shootings of Unarmed L.A. Black Men
5. Reggie Doucet, Jr.
Los Angeles civil-rights leaders were equally furious, in January 2011, to learn that LAPD officers had killed unarmed 25-year-old Reggie Doucet -- a former college football star wearing only his underwear. Cops had been called to Doucet's apartment over a dispute between the young black man and his cab driver. Although Doucet wasn't armed, the officer who shot him dead (also black) said that he was acting extremely violent and reaching for the officer's gun holster.
