Details of shooting
In Collie’s case, Fort Worth police were looking for two suspects in connection with a late-night robbery that occurred in the parking lot of a gas station near Normandale Street and Las Vegas Trail. One of the suspects displayed a silver handgun and robbed someone, and then both suspects fled on foot to a nearby apartment complex, according to a news release.
Barron and Flores were in a Fort Worth patrol car working an off-duty assignment and saw someone matching the description of one of the robbers duck behind a row of bushes, according to the release.
As the officers approached and exited the patrol car, the suspect began walking away from them and a sheriff’s deputy at the scene. The officers gave oral commands for the suspect to stop; however, he continued walking away. He was told again by the officers to stop and show the officers his hands, one of which was in a pants pocket.
The suspect then removed a silver object from his pocket and pointed it directly at the deputy, according to the news release. The officer saw the silver object, believed the man was threatening the deputy with a firearm, and fired two rounds at Collie, striking him once in the lower torso.
The suspect dropped the silver object, police said, which turned out to be a box cutter. The officer immediately began to treat Collie’s gunshot wound and bleeding with his department-issued tactical medical kit until paramedics arrived.
Longer version of viral video
In the incident involving the arrests of mother and her two daughters, a full version of a viral video reveals more than 22 minutes of new footage from before the officer arrived and after the arrests.
The full video, posted Friday on YouTube, is almost 30 minutes long and does not reveal any major new information about the arrests.
The version of the video that went viral after it was posted Wednesday night — with 3.2 million views on Facebook, to date — is six minutes long and doesn’t include portions from the beginning and end. That six-minute video was posted on Facebook by a family relative, Porsha Craver, who recorded it on another phone.
The longer Facebook Live video, shot by Jacqueline Craig’s daughter Brea Hymond, 19, begins with Craig and her family confronting a man painting his fence in the 7400 block of Rock Garden Trail. Then, viewers hear Craig’s 911 call saying the man assaulted her 7-year-old son by grabbing his neck for littering.
Seven minutes in, an unidentified man who appears to know Craig gets out of a white car, approaches the man painting his fence, tells him to keep his hands off the boy, gets into his car and drives away.
When the officer arrives, he first asks the accused man what happened, then asks Craig what happened.
While she gives the officer her account, Craig, 46, says her son’s littering didn’t give the man the right to touch him.
“Why don’t you teach your son not to litter?” says the officer, who has not been identified.
“He can’t prove that my son littered,” Craig responds. “But it doesn’t matter if he did or didn’t, it doesn’t give him the right to put his hands on him.”
“Why not?” the officer says.
‘Who’s kicking my door?’
A struggle between the two ensues and Craig’s 15-year-old daughter, Jacques Hymond, steps between them.
The officer then pulls his Taser, wrestles Craig to the ground and puts her in handcuffs before pointing the Taser at Jacques, who was lying in the street. She is also handcuffed and placed with her mom in the police vehicle.
The screen goes black about 16 minutes in, when the officer arrests Brea Hymond and takes the phone from her but does not turn it off.
Around 20 minutes into the video, a conversation between the officer and Jacques is heard.
“Who’s kicking my door? Who’s kicking my door? Was that you?” the officer asks.
“It don’t matter. You kicked me,” Jacques says.
“… When a police officer tells you to get in the car, you get in the car,” the officer says.
Jacques told the Star-Telegram after the incident that she was “just trying to protect my mom.”
In the final 15 minutes of the video, the officer talks to Craig and Jacques in the patrol car before Jacques is taken by another officer to a juvenile detention center.
The officer turns the phone off just after the 29-minute mark.
He has been placed on restricted duty pending the outcome of the investigation.
