Witness: Glasford man shot 10 times

Peoria Journal Star, IL

LEWISTOWN - A Glasford man was killed after being shot 10 times by three Illinois State Police officers during a June drug raid on the home where he lived, a Fulton County Coroner's jury was told Friday.

Police broke into the dwelling at about 6 a.m. June 23 when David Green, 47, didn't respond to knocks at the door, Illinois State Police Special Agent Eugene Tennial told the coroner's jury.

Tennial, who works for the agency's Division of Internal Investigation, was the lone witness during the inquest.

He said members of the Illinois State Police Tactical Response Team and the West Central Illinois Task Force were serving a warrant at the home after a two-month investigation indicated Green and homeowner Daniel Matheny were growing marijuana on the property.
