Colbert had the two young daughters of his fiancee loaded up for school when a local officer tried to stop him for stolen plates. Colbert did not stop, or did not stop fast enough. He was fatally shot once in the neck. The killing sparked community protests: the same officer had a similar fatal shooting four years previous, and Irvington had been the site of the near-fatal police beating of Haitian immigrant Max Antoine in 1996.
