Whenever this comes up, I am always reminded of this news story
] A police shooting at a Los Angeles Halloween party has claimed the life of an actor.
Anthony Dwain Lee, 39, was attending a crowded Halloween party in the Benedict Canyon area of Los Angeles early Saturday morning when L.A. police officer Tarriel Hopper shot him several times through a glass door from the outside of the house.
Lee was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics.
The Los Angeles Police Department was responding to calls complaining about the noisy party. And according to a statement released by the LAPD, Hopper opened fire at Lee when the victim pointed at police with what turned out to be a fake gun.
Among Lee's screen credits are the 1997 Jim Carrey hit comedy "Liar Liar," the critically acclaimed CBS drama "Brooklyn South" and an upcoming episode of "ER."
