Feb. 8, 2013 — Hialeah

Police stopped Zeyken Suarez Triana because his Audi matched the vehicle used by a robbery suspect.

According to court filings, Hialeah police Officer Norberto Lopez approached the car with his gun drawn and knocked on the window. Triana opened the driver's-side door and Lopez pulled the unarmed man from the car and forced him face down on the ground. During the take-down, Lopez shot Triana, 34, in the back.

Lopez argued in court documents that he was acting reasonably when he detained a man he suspected was a robbery suspect. In an attempt to stop the car, which started rolling forward, Lopez accidentally fired his weapon. The civil case against Lopez and the city of Hialeah was settled for an undisclosed amount in 2015.
