In the early morning hours of August 19th, 1989, Mark MacPhail was responding to a disturbance in the parking lot of a restaurant where he was working as a security guard.

He came across altercation involving three men. One man had just pistol whipped another with a hand gun. As Mark approached to try and stop the assailant turned and fired his gun, hitting Mark multiple times. Mark dropped to the ground and two men fled from the scene. The caller who reported the crime to 911 said that they saw multiple people running from the scene but were unable to identify them. The man who was assaulted was unable to identify who hit him with the gun.

The short but irreparably tragic altercation set off a chain of events that spanned over 20 years and ended with the execution of a man whose innocence is still debated today.
