NY cop tries to turn on pistol-mounted flashlight, fatally shoots man

The family of that man, suspected drug dealer Michael Anthony Alcala, is suing for negligence

NEW YORK — The shooting of an innocent, unarmed elderly Bronx man by a cop who was trying to turn on a pistol-mounted flashlight is at least the second accidental police shooting in the United States involving that flashlight model.

But unlike Saturday's shooting of 76-year-old Jose Colon - who survived a cop's bullet to the stomach - an unarmed Texas man died Oct. 13 under what reportedly were strikingly similar circumstances involving the Surefire X300 flashlight.
