GRAPEVINE (AP) – A small crowd of protesters has gathered in Grapevine to push for the release of a dashboard camera video in a fatal officer-involved shooting.
Grapevine police spokesman Sgt. Robert Eberling has said the Tarrant County district attorney’s office told them not to release the video because it’s evidence in a criminal investigation.
The police department said officer Robert Clark shot and killed an unarmed Mexican citizen, 31-year-old Ruben Villalpando, after a brief car chase on Feb. 20 from Grapevine to Euless.
The department said Garcia had gotten out of his truck and walked toward Clark, even though the officer repeatedly told him to stop.
A Tarrant County grand jury will review the case that’s being investigated by Euless police.
