Texas Police Officer Charged With Murder In Connection To Jonathan Price Shooting: Reports

The police officer involved in the Texas gas station shooting that resulted in the death of Jonathan Price was arrested and charged with murder, according to Fox News.

A Wolfe City Police officer, Shaun David Lucas, read a statement from the Texas Rangers, obtained by local media.

Lucas was reportedly responding that night to a domestic disturbance call about a possible fight in progress.

The statement said Price, 31, who is Black, was reportedly involved “in the disturbance” and when Lucas tried to detain him, he “resisted in a non-threatening posture and began walking away.”

The statement said that a “preliminary investigation indicates that the actions of Officer Lucas were not objectionably reasonable.”

Junior Price, his father, told the station, “I loved my son, and I tried to bring him up to do the right thing.”

Lucas deployed his Taser and fired his gun, striking Price, the statement alleged. Price, who was reportedly unarmed, died at a nearby hospital.

Price’s relatives described him as a model citizen and said he was trying to break up an argument between a man and a woman, Fox 4 News reported.

Price’s relatives told CBS 11 News that there is a video that shows the shooting was a criminal act.

Lucas posted his $1 million bond, the report said.
