Dominic Fuller was killed by Florida police after a neighborhood chase on September 22, 2015. Around 8:50 p.m. Deputy Sheriff Carlos Valle spotted Dominic Fuller standing in the doorway of 1200 Dixie Drive. Deputy Valle ordered Fuller several times to show his hands – Fuller stood off-center from the deputy, showing only his left hand and concealing his right hand behind his back, refusing commands. Deputies say Fuller lifted his right hand, holding a black and chrome stapler. Thinking it was a pistol, Deputy Gabriel Reveron fired five times at Fuller, killing him.
