news from detroit


July 18, 2008: 35-year-old Robert Hill, backpack strapped on, rode his bicycle to an apartment building at Appoline and Buena Vista. Hill and his bicycle were rammed by a police car into another vehicle. The officers claimed that Hill pulled a gun, and when they ordered him to put it down, he pointed it at them and they shot him to death. Relatives said later that Hill was going to defend his niece in a domestic violence incident at the apartment building.
