Officer Wilie Ivery was accidentally shot and killed by two uniformed officers who mistook him for a suspect.
Officer Ivery and his partner were working a plainclothes detail near 6th Street and Massachussetts Avenue, NE, when they attempted to stop a robbery suspect. They exited their unmarked cruiser with their guns drawn. At the same time, the uniformed officers pulled up as they were also looking for the armed robbery suspect. Officer Ivery was told to halt and as he turned to see who was yelling, he was shot by the officers.
Officer Ivery had been with the Metropolitan Police Department for two years, and is survived by his wife.
