HOUSTON, Texas. (WKRN) — Four officers with the Houston Police Department were fired after the fatal shooting back in April.
A months long investigation by the department found the shooting was “objectively unreasonable” after officers fired 21 rounds at a man in distress.
The situation began when received multiple calls about a man who was running through traffic on the highway.
Investigators say Nicolas Chavez was running around in a parking lot while holding a metal object.
Police said he was shot to “stop him from harming himself.”
