Cops Kill Man Standing With Hands Up [VIDEO]

By

Two Bexar County, Texas, sheriff’s deputies have been placed on administrative leave after a video showed them appearing to shoot a man standing still with his hands up during a domestic-violence call. Greg Vasquez and Robert Sanchez said they found a woman holding a baby and bleeding from her head, as well as a shirtless man with a knife, according to the sheriff’s department. The deputies claimed they’d tried to subdue the shirtless man, Gilbert Flores, with a Taser and shield for at least 20 minutes. In video obtained by the local news station, however, Flores appears to stand perfectly still with his apparently empty hands up before one of the officers shot him.
