Dashcam video shows deadly deputy-involved shooting of unarmed man

The Harris County Sheriff's Office released dashcam video of a deadly deputy-involved shooting of an unarmed man who had his pants around his ankles.

Last week, 34-year-old Danny Thomas was fighting with another man at the corner of Imperial Valley and Greens Road when a deputy reportedly stepped in to break it up. The deputy says Thomas began walking toward him, and ignored commands to get down on the ground. The deputy shot Thomas, who later died at the hospital. No weapon was found on Thomas or at the scene.

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez says his department is investigating. The deputy who shot Thomas was placed on administrative leave.

On the Factor is Pastor E.A. Deckard who has consulted with the deceased man’s family.
