Signs of the shooting that ended Eugene Ellison’s life litter the floor of his apartment on Dec. 9, 2010. Off-duty Little Rock police officer Donna Lesher shot the 67-year-old after a struggle in which she and detective Tabitha McCrillis couldn’t subdue him when he became enraged at their presence in his home. The shooting was ruled justifiable, but has created a rift among officers who think the shooting was avoidable. Two of Ellison’s sons have served on the Little Rock Police Force. Police Chief Stuart Thomas will appoint a deadly force review panel this week to assess possible changes in policy or procedure.
