In Texas, a white police officer has been charged with murder for the fatal shooting of 31-year-old Jonathan Price, a Black man who was killed at a gas station on Saturday. Officer Shaun Lucas tased and shot Price, even though he was walking away from him and was “nonthreatening,” according to the Texas Rangers, who arrested Lucas. Just prior to his killing, Price had reportedly intervened after a man assaulted a woman, but that situation had already been resolved before officer Lucas arrived at the scene. Jonathan Price was a motivational speaker and trainer, and former college football player at Hardin-Simmons University.
