CASTRO STATEMENT ON RECENT SAN ANTONIO SHOOTING
San Antonio, TX - Today, Congressman Joaquin Castro (TX-20) released the following statement regarding the fatal shooting of a San Antonio man by Bexar County Sheriff's deputies:
"The encounter is extremely disturbing as it appears to show an unarmed man with his hands up being shot by a deputy. This incident is further evidence that police officers and deputies should wear body cameras. The widely-supported technology brings transparency and accountability that protects law enforcement and civilians alike. With regard to the specific case in San Antonio, I trust that District Attorney Nico LaHood will pursue an indictment if all the evidence merits it."
