“A Texas city police officer arrived at the parking lot and saw the individual firing his handgun in the direction of people and drew his service weapon,” says Texas City Police Chief Robert Burby.
Investigators say the officer gave Smith a warning, and Smith turned and pointed the gun at officers.
An autopsy showed he was shot five times: once in his left shoulder, once on his left side, once on his left upper chest, and twice in the face (one wound to the cheek, and one to the chin).
