New York Detectives Robert Parker, 43, and Patrick Rafferty, 39, were fatally shot while responding to a call for help in a domestic dispute.
Marlon Legere, apparently was causing a commotion because his mother would not let him use her car, she dialed 911, and Parker and Rafferty were responding. What they did not know is that they were facing a person who served time for assault, sexual abuse and drugs. He was released from prison on the assault charge in March, according to state correction records. His criminal history includes nine arrests, including one for grand larceny.
Both detectives were shot and left bleeding to death.
