There was another fatal police shooting of another person of color … this time in Cypress, Texas.
This video, which has not been seen and was shot March 17, picks up near a gas station, as 3 cops hover over a Hispanic man they are trying to subdue. One of the officers has a Taser in hand, as the man on the ground struggles and kicks, eventually pushing himself up from the ground. It sounds like the cop tased the man.
Then, suddenly, the same cop holsters his Taser, draws his gun and shoots the man repeatedly in the back. The man was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.
According to the Harris County Sheriff’s Dept. their deputies responded to a call about a knife-wielding man who was bloodied. The Dept. says the man fought deputies as they tried detaining him.
The deputies attempted CPR at the scene before EMS showed up.
The Homicide Unit of the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, as well as the Internal Affairs division, is investigating.
