KILLEEN, Texas (KBTX) – Killeen police on Tuesday released an officer’s body camera video that shows the moment an unarmed man was fatally shot last week outside a home.
On Sunday, January 10, Officer Reynaldo Contreras, a five-year department veteran, was sent to a home on Carrollton Avenue in Killeen after police received a call requesting a mental health officer to help with Patrick Warren, Sr., 52, who was reportedly acting aggressively.
In the video released by police, Officer Contreras is seen arriving alone at the home and then waiting outside until backup officers arrived. Moments later Warren is seen going outside and advancing towards the officer and ignoring his commands.
A taser gun was first used to try and stop him, but he continued to advance toward the officer who then used his gun to fire three shots at Warren.
Warren was taken to Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center where he died.
