KILLEEN, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – The attorney for a Texas family is calling for change and an arrest after a man was shot and killed by a Killeen police officer during a mental health check. A rally was held on January 14 in the name of Patrick Warren Sr.
Warren was shot and killed on Sunday, January 10 after the family called for help with a mental health situation and police Officer Reynaldo Contreras was sent to the home instead.
Ring doorbell footage shows Officer Contreras knocking on Warren’s door, which was a surprise to his family who had requested help from a mental health professional. The family said they had called for help the day before, and a mental health professional arrived with no issue.
