HOUSTON (FOX 26) - The Harris County District Attorney’s Office released the following statement on Friday:
A grand jury Friday indicted a former Houston Police officer for an off-duty incident in which he shot and wounded a neighbor following an argument over a dog.
Jason Loosmore, 32, is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
“He used his badge and gun to try and settle a personal score,” Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg said. “The community, through a grand jury, decided the officer broke the law.”
Loosmore was not in uniform during the Oct. 13, 2016 incident, but had a badge handing around his neck.
He shot Casey Brown three times with a 9 mm handgun while Brown was in his own yard.
Brown, who was unarmed, is still recovering from his injuries.
Loosmore, who had been an officer for seven years at the time of the shooting, resigned from the Houston Police Department in April 2017.
If convicted, he faces two to 20 years in prison and a fine up to $10,000.
