NY1 VIDEO: On February 4, 1999, 23-year-old Amadou Diallo was shot 41 times and killed by police in the vestibule of his building in the Bronx. The story dominated the headlines for months and raised questions about the use of force by the NYPD and police-community relations. In this first look back at coverage of the story, NY1's John Schiumo filed this report in February 1999 on a rally held in the days immediately following the shooting.
