#14: Omar's Death On 'The Wire'
Omar Little was the unofficial hero of The Wire, where he was the one character we were all rooting for. So when he got killed, fans were devastated — but the way he got killed was the hard part to come to terms with.

A notorious Baltimore stick-up man, people assumed he would probably meet his end on the streets. But it was way more random than that. Walking into a Korean-owned convenience store, he got shot in the head by a young boy part of an opposing crew. The casual, pointless violence is what left the audience shocked.
