Allen was shot and wounded by Syracuse Police Officer Arthur Williams in January when he refused to drop a knife he was holding. Police had caught Allen breaking into a home. Williams said he ordered Allen to drop the knife three times. When Allen rushed forward, Williams fired five shots, hitting Allen once in the arm. Williams was unharmed.
