MESQUITE, Texas (AP) Authorities say they’ve decided that a black auto housebreaking suspect shot by officers in a Dallas suburb was making an attempt to get into his personal locked truck.
Lyndo Jones is recovering after he was shot within the stomach by Mesquite police on Nov. eight. At a information convention Tuesday, police Lt. Brian Parrish stated officers responded after somebody reported a person breaking right into a car, setting off its alarm.
Parrish says Jones was shot throughout a scuffle because the officers tried to handcuff him.
Parrish confirms assertions by Jones’ lawyer that the truck was his shopper’s. Lawyer S. Lee Merritt says the capturing was unjustified and that Jones was denied counsel.
Parrish denies that declare, however says the capturing is beneath separate inner and felony investigations.
