Texas DPS releases footage of troopers fatally shooting Schaston Hodge 27, 16 times after traffic stop

Videos released by the Texas Department of Public Safety on Tuesday show Schaston Hodge 27, shot by two troopers after a traffic stop last summer.

The footage comes from the body camera and dashboard camera of two troopers who stopped Hodge on Aug. 17, 2019, in South Dallas. They began pursuing him after he failed to signal a left turn and led the troopers on a brief chase.

The pursuit ended when troopers followed him into his grandmother’s driveway, and the situation escalated quickly. As Hodge gets out of his car, he is seen holding a gun. At that point, shots are fired and Schaston Hodge was pronounce dead.
