A Family Tragedy

[Updated] A teenage son with a history of mental illness, off his medication, got into a heated argument with his parents. It escalated, and they called a crisis intervention hotline. The person at the hotline chose to send the police. When a police officer came to the door, the son opened it. A struggle ensued. The police officer drew his gun and fired at the unarmed boy five times as he attempted to flee. Four bullets hit him in the back, one lodged in the door.

Here are a couple of news reports: Fort Bend Now; KHOU.

My info comes from a friend of the family. Please pray for them.
