On Monday, Shaun Lucas was arrested and charged with murder related to the death of Jonathan Price, an unarmed black man. He was posted in Hunt County, Texas, and held a $ 1 million bond.
Shaun Lucas responded to a “possible fight ongoing” in Wolfe City, Texas, a town about 70 miles from Dallas, Texas officials said in a statement late Monday evening.
“The preliminary investigation found that Officer Lucas’ actions were not objectionable,” said the Texas Rangers. “The Texas Rangers charged Officer Lucas with the murder and sent him to Hunt County Jail.”
According to CBS News, Lee Merritt, who represents Price’s family, said, “When the police arrived, he held up his hands and tried to explain what was going on. The police fired Taser at him and when his body was jolted by the electrical system, they “sensed a threat” and shot him, “as previously reported.
Family attorney Lee Merritt tweeted, “… it should [have] happened the day he murdered JP. John should still be here. “He added,” This is step one. Let’s take it to court. “
We’ll keep you posted, Roomies.
