More information on the very tragic police shooting and killing of Rufino Lara in Houston, TX

“Update: According to a Houston Chronicle report, witnesses say the dead man, Rufino Lara, did not have his hands in his pockets, but in the air. A witness also said the officers addressed them only in English.

An unidentified man was shot to death by a Houston police officer when he reached into his waistband — contrary to the orders of the officer — and she shot him, according to police.

There was no weapon on the man; he was reaching for a can of beer, investigators reported.”
