Schuyler presided over the trials against Brannon Lee Redding and Brian Ackerman, both of which concerned a shooting at P.S. 74 that killed Jeffrey Whitlock and injured Annabelle Paoletti and Danny Koehler. In the Redding trial, he was outraged that the Manhattan District Attorney's Office had cut a deal to give Redding reduced jail time in exchange for testimony against Ackerman and thus nullified the deal, telling Redding that his sentence would be so long that his parole officer's parents were yet to be born.
Schuyler was killed in the subsequent Ackerman trial when, during testimony by Redding, Ackerman's son Kyle and a friend, Christopher Rawlings, went on a shooting rampage in the courtroom, killing Redding, Schuyler, and a court officer, as well as wounding Detectives Elliot Stabler and John Munch and another court officer, before being killed by Stabler and FBI Agent Dana Lewis.
