When Cincinnati narcotics officers pulled 37-year-old Joseph Deller over on Kellogg Avenue, hoping to arrest him for narcotics violations, he resolved to die rather than go to prison, according to a news release from the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office. He stepped out of the car with a gun in each hand.  They were pellet guns painted to look like pistols, officers would discover, but not before four of them pulled the trigger on their own real weapons. Deller was struck twice.
