Archie Elliott, June 18, 1993
Archie Elliott was a 24-year-old college student paying his way through school by working construction jobs. While driving home from work he was stopped by police and ordered to take a field sobriety test which he failed. Despite being handcuffed and in the front seat of the police car, police shot him to death after they said he pointed a revolver at them. The revolver was never tested for fingerprints and the crime scene was tampered with by Officers Jason Leavitt of the District Heights Police Department and Wayne Cheney of the Prince George's Police Department.
