Black Lives Matters calls for justice for Baytown woman killed by police
A crowd of supporters turned out Saturday night to call for justice for Pamela Turner, a 44-year-old grandmother with mental health issues who was gunned downed by police this week.
Turner was fatally shot during a confrontation with Baytown Police officer Juan Delacruz at The Brixton Apartments complex at 1601 Garth on Monday.
More than a dozen people, led by Black Lives Matter organizer Kandice Webber, denounced Delacruz’s actions.
Ben Crump, a lawyer who is representing the family, called Turner’s death one of the worst police shootings he’d ever seen on video. He said they will be pushing for all possible avenues of legal justice, including a criminal murder charge on the officer.
