Texas police officer charged with murder of Jonathan Price, a Black man who was shot while ‘walking away’ from a disturbance

A white Texas police officer was arrested on Monday night and charged with the murder of a Black man who was “walking away” from a disturbance outside a convenience store last weekend, authorities said.

The Texas Rangers charged Wolfe City officer Shaun Lucas for the fatal shooting of 31-year-old Jonathan Price, the Texas Department of Public Safety announced in a statement emailed to USA TODAY.

“The preliminary investigation indicates that the actions of Officer Lucas were not objectionably reasonable,” the statement says.

Lucas was booked into the Hunt County Jail, where his bail was set at $1 million, according to the Dallas Morning News.
