Police say CEO threatened officer before shooting
NEWARK, N.J. (7/22/10)--The CEO of an Atlanta, Ga., credit union threatened a police officer before being fatally shot in a New Jersey park Friday, according to a statement from the prosecutor’s office of Essex County. DeFarra “Dean” Gaymon, 48, was shot by police Friday. Gaymon had been visiting Newark, N.J., for a class reunion. He was president/CEO of Credit Union of Atlanta. The plainclothes officer had just made an unrelated arrest in the area and had responded to a complaint in the park known for illicit sex acts (The Atlanta-Journal Constitution July 21). The officer said he shot Gaymon after Gaymon tried to assault him. The officer had tried to arrest Gaymon for unlawful activity. The 29-year-old officer, who has been with the Essex County police department eight years, was placed on medical leave. The investigation is ongoing. Gaymon was married and had four children. His family wrote in a statement that Gaymon was “a peaceful, caring, friendly and law-abiding man.” Cassandra Brown, assistant vice president of marketing and business development for the $56-million-asset Credit Union of Atlanta, told the Constitution that Gaymon was “the ultimate professional.”
