The deputies shot and killed Flores Friday while responding to a domestic disturbance report.
KSAT 12 obtained and has released a witness video of the shooting on its website, showing the moment the shooting took place.
Executive Director of the ACLU of Texas Terri Burke issued the following statement:
“The video of Gilbert Flores’ fatal shooting by two deputies of the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office raises serious concerns over whether these officers used force that was proportional to the circumstances. Like other events that that we’ve seen across the country involving interactions with law enforcement, this one points to a troubling trend of overzealous and abusive policing. The video doesn’t show every aspect of the interaction, but it certainly raises serious questions about whether the level of force was constitutionally permissible. We call on the Sheriff’s department and the Bexar County District Attorney’s Office to conduct a transparent investigation and hold any wrongdoers accountable.”
ACLU of Texas Senior Policy Strategist Matt Simpson issued this statement:
“Were it not for the footage captured by a concerned member of the public, Texans would have no record of yet another interaction with police that turned deadly. To provide more objective evidence of police encounters, all law-enforcement agencies should adopt use of body-worn cameras. Though not a complete solution for incidents of deterring officer or civilian misconduct, body-worn cameras would enable law enforcement to become more transparent to the public, promote police accountability, and help ensure interactions with community members are fair and lawful.”
Rep. Joaquin Castro (Texas-20) also talked about the need for more body cameras in his statement on the shooting, released Tuesday.
“The encounter is extremely disturbing as it appears to show an unarmed man with his hands up being shot by a deputy. This incident is further evidence that police officers and deputies should wear body cameras. The widely-supported technology brings transparency and accountability that protects law enforcement and civilians alike. With regard to the specific case in San Antonio, I trust that District Attorney Nico LaHood will pursue an indictment if all the evidence merits it,” Castro said.
