Man Dies in Police Raid on Wrong House


ABC News A 61-year-old man was shot to death by police while his wife was handcuffed in another room during a drug raid on the wrong house.

Police admitted their mistake, saying faulty information from a drug informant contributed to the death of John Adams Wednesday night. They intended to raid the home next door.

The two officers, 25-year-old Kyle Shedran and 24-year-old Greg Day, were placed on administrative leave with pay.

“They need to get rid of those men, boys with toys,” said Adams’ 70-year-old widow, Loraine.
John Adams was watching television when his wife heard pounding on the door. Police claim they identified themselves and wore police jackets. Loraine Adams said she had no indication the men were police.

“I thought it was a home invasion. I said ‘Baby, get your gun!,” she said, sitting amid friends and relatives gathered at her home to cook and prepare for Sunday’s funeral.

Resident Fired First

Police say her husband fired first with a sawed-off shotgun and they responded. He was shot at least three times and died later at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville.

Loraine Adams said she was handcuffed and thrown to her knees in another room when the shooting began.

“I said, ‘Y’all have got the wrong person, you’ve got the wrong place. What are you looking for?“‘
“We did the best surveillance we could do, and a mistake was made,” Lebanon Police Chief Billy Weeks said. “It’s a very severe mistake, a costly mistake. It makes us look at our own policies and procedures to make sure this never occurs again.” He said, however, the two policemen were not at fault.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is investigating. NAACP officials said they are monitoring the case. Adams was black. The two policemen are white.

Family members did not consider race a factor and Weeks agreed, but said the shooting will be “a major setback” for police relations with the black community.

“We know that, we hope to do everything we can to heal it,” Weeks said.
Johnny Crudup, a local NAACP official, said the organization wanted to make sure and would investigate on its own.

Weeks said he has turned the search warrant and all other evidence over to the bureau of investigation and District Attorney General Tommy Thompson. A command officer must now review all search warrants.

Re: Man Dies in Police Raid on Wrong House

I don't understand how they got the wrong person/house. Don't they need evidence to conduct a raid? And shouldn't that evidence (or lack thereof) indicate early on that they have the wrong person? Or was it just a clerical error, someone saying or typing the wrong address?

It only makes sense that if someone is shooting at you that you would shoot back. The cops probably thought he was a dangerous criminal and the man probably didn't know he was shooting at cops. So everyone is confused and acting on impulse while holding firearms. This is assuming the police are telling it how it happened and the man shot at them first.

There was an episode of Cops where the cops break this door down and start yelling to everyone inside the house to get out because it's on fire. So the cops and the family inside are running around when another cop runs up and say "no, this is the wrong house" and the camera pans the neighboring house that has smoke billowing out the windows and flames shooting from the roof. Even if they were given the wrong address or something you would think they would see the house that was very obviously on fire an focus their attention on it.

Re: Man Dies in Police Raid on Wrong House

Actually this has happened a fair number of times, and there have been other fatalities (even a Reverend in Chicago I believe), and an elderly lady Kathryn Johnston. The law enforcement people usually rely on the element of surprise in "no-knock warrants" so that victims, er I mean, suspects won't flush evidence down the toilet, or burn it or whatever.
There is the good possibility that one hell of a settlement from a lawsuit can be expected. Bad news is that such a fortune will be taken from taxpayers. This is the "War on Drugs"

Re: Man Dies in Police Raid on Wrong House

I wonder if any police ever hear these stories? Do they think that this stuff never happens? I would think that the amount of evidence showing the harm of the war on drugs on this website would be enough to make anyone cringe. I wonder if an officer would change his opinion after exploring this website. The fact that this even happened is so sad. If drugs became legal, police officers would then be forced to accept the harm they caused, which would probaly devastate them. After realizing all the people they've killed, arrested and the lives they've ruined unintentionally in the name of the war of drugs, it would definitly be earth-shattering, but it's for there own good. Officers must be misled by their superiors into believing what they do is right, otherwise why would anyone want to do this work?
