Sgt. Young of the Providence Police Department was shot by two fellow officers who mistook him for a suspect. He was in street clothes when he saw an armed suspect confronting two officers outside a restaurant and drew his own gun to help. The officers failed to recognize him and ordered him to drop his weapon and when he didn't, they fired, hitting him three times.
