The attorney for the family of a young, Black man who was fatally shot last week by a police officer in a Houston suburb said Tuesday that the family is planning to release results of an independent autopsy in the death.😩
Autopsy results in the killing of Joshua Feast, 22, will be released Wednesday, civil rights attorney Ben Crump said at a news conference Tuesday.
Few details have been released about the Dec. 9 shooting. The officer who killed Feast has been identified as La Marque police Officer Jose Santos, who is currently on paid leave.
Crump continued his call for a thorough investigation of the killing and for police to release body camera footage from the shooting in La Marque, about 40 miles (64 kilometers) southeast of Houston. The lawyer also said at the news conference in Texas City that the officer who killed Feast should be fired.
La Marque Police Chief Kirk Jackson claimed Joshua Feast was a person of interest but not too sure about several recent shootings in the city on the southern edge of Houston and that weapons were found at the scene of his fatal shooting.But those claims are valid til I look at the body cam.
