Hong Junior Leong, 40, was killed after he was shot up to 16 times in the back by officers John Borgens and James Pratt on Nov. 18, 1997, after a chase that began when Leong squealed his tires on an east-side street.
The officers said a drunk Leong got out of his pickup, fired a shotgun blast into the air and turned toward them. He then pointed the firearm, refused to drop it and invited them to kill him, the officers said. But police evidence technicians found the shotgun had been fired inside Leong's truck.
