Officer Victor Rodchenko was an officer of the Auxiliary Police Unit. He was convicted of manslaughter in the shooting of accountant Maria Soriano during a pro-immigration rally, as well as attempted murder in the shooting of Ignacio Perez at the same event. ("Illegal")
Originally from Bosnia, Victor Rodchenko and his family moved the United States when he was 10 years old. Feeling a great love for his adopted home, as an adult he tried to become an NYPD police officer, but was only able to make it into the Auxiliaries in the 74th Precinct. Despite this, he sought to improve himself, and thus worked to obtain a Glock, hoping that eventually he'd make it into the "real" units. According to his superior, Lieutenant Brody, Rodchenko was an upstanding officer.
Things fell apart for Rodchenko when his unit was called in to assist in crowd control during a pro-immigration rally. He was struck by a bottle thrown by Ignacio Perez, a two-time felon, and in the subsequent confusion heard the commander of another police unit give the "Green Light" command. Rodchenko claims he mistook this as a command directed at him, and fired his Glock twice. One bullet grazed Perez's leg, while the other struck and killed Maria Soriano, a Salvadorean-born accountant.
Rodchenko was subsequently tried for his actions, and ultimately found guilty.
