McDonald, who was the lead plaintiff in the lawsuit that led the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn the Chicago's handgun ban has died. McDonald's death on Friday, April 4, 2014, was confirmed Sunday by his nephew and family spokesman, Fred Jones. McDonald was one of four plaintiffs who challenged the city's decades-old handgun ban and who won a 5-4 decision in 2010. He argued that he was trying to protect himself and his family from the violence outside his front door in a deteriorating neighborhood on Chicago's South Side. (AP Photo/Haraz N. Ghanbari)
