A campus police officer in San Antonio, Texas is under investigation after shooting and killing an unarmed student at an off-campus traffic stop.
At a press conference on Friday, Lt. Cindy Pruitt of the Alamo Heights Police Department said that an altercation occurred when University of the Incarnate Word Cpl. Chris Carter pulled over 23-year-old Robert Cameron Redus just a few blocks off campus at around 2 a.m Friday morning.
A witness who did not wish to be identified recalled to KSAT that the officer never warned Redus before shooting him.
"I didn't hear him say anything like, 'Get down on your hands and knees,' you know? I didn't hear him say anything. He just started shooting," the witness said. “He emptied the gun on him.... Boom, boom, boom. Six shots -- five or six.”
However, 22-year-old Mohammad Haidarasl -- a resident of Treehouse Apartments in Alamo Heights -- did hear Redus speak to the officer.
A 40-year-old police officer in San Antonio, Texas is facing charges of felony sexual assault after a 19-year-old woman accused him of handcuffing and raping her during a traffic stop over the weekend.
