A police officer in Dallas, Texas, Aaron Tolerton, has shot and killed a man. Desmond Luster is the man who died. He was 45.
There is still confusion as to exactly what happened. But it sounds like Luster may have been mugged by some kids, and then went after them in his pickup. He may or may not have tried to run them over. Now, if that is true, it would justify shooting to stop him. But the facts aren’t clear yet.
