Summaryhttp://Victim was a felony theft suspect and led police on a chase from a target into the nearby Tarrant County College parking lot. There, the officers attempted to taze the victim. The police account is that the victim fought with the officers and grabbed the stun gun from the officer, at which point the officer shot the victim four times, killing him. A pending lawsuit alleges that the victim had been pepper-sprayed and then tazed, and while rubbing his face and trying to remove the tazer from his arm, the officer shot the victim four times, killing him.
