Attorneys and activists joined the family of 44-year-old Pamela Turner outside the Harris County Courthouse on Thursday for a press conference.
Turner’s death has received local and national attention. It was caught on video by a witness. She was shot multiple by Baytown Police Officer Juan Delacruz at Brixton Apartments in Baytown on Monday night. Turner and Delacruz got into a struggle and Baytown police say she reached for the officer’s Taser.
Attorney Ben Crump is now representing the family of Turner and believes this is an unjustifiable killing; Equal Justice Now agrees with him.
