NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) – A high-speed chase through the streets of North Texas ends with an officer shooting and killing a suspect. The officer involved could face up to 20 years in prison for what has now been deemed a crime.
In a rare move, a Dallas County Grand Jury has indicted Patrick Tuter, a former Garland police officer, for manslaughter. It was August of last year when Tuter fired 41 bullets at unarmed suspect Michael Vincent Allen.
It’s been three years since a police officer has been indicted for an on-duty shooting in Dallas County. Today’s action is only the second time in 17 years that an officer has been indicted.
