Neighbors question police account after off-duty officer shoots a man in his neighborhood
houstonchronicle.com / Sat, 15 Oct 2016 03:32:00 UT
The day after an off-duty Houston police officer shot a man during what was called a neighborhood dispute, several neighbors questioned the officer's account of the shooting. [...] some neighbors on Friday afternoon disputed the officer's account of what happened on Riderwood Drive at Belle Park, where crime-scene tape still hung off the stop sign and medical gauze lay on the sidewalk. Looking through her window, Corral said she saw the officer move the wounded man to sit him against a neighbor's brick wall, the same grassy spot where blood was still drying Friday afternoon. [...] since the wounded man is black, she speculated the shooting could be seen to fit the pattern of police shootings that have drawn scrutiny in recent years. Asked Friday about the neighbor's reports, another HPD spokesman said the department cannot discuss the case publicly because Internal Affairs has taken it over, along with homicide detectives and the district attorney's office, as is standard in officer-involved shootings.
