Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: Shavod Jones :: Black / Male - 15 years old

Location: Central Park   New York, NY   USA   Sat. Jul. 12, 1986
Summary: Detective Steven McDonald died as a result of gunshot wounds he received 31 years earlier.

He was on foot patrol in Central Park when he encountered a teenager he believed has committed a robbery in the park earlier that evening. As Detective McDonald questioned the teen, the teen drew a concealed handgun and fired, striking Detective McDonald in the head and neck.

Detective McDonald was transported to a local hospital where it was determined that his wounds had caused paralysis. After a lengthy rehabilitation, Detective McDonald was able to return home. He was confined to a wheelchair and needed the assistance of a machine to breath.

On January 10th, 2017 Detective McDonald died as a direct result of complications from the gunshot wounds.
