Temple Police Department

Michael Dean was not armed when Temple Police Department Officer Carmen DeCruz shot him in the head for "evading" during a traffic stop, a police report said.

The Texas police officer who killed Michael Dean last week by shooting him in the head was sued for excessive force when he was accused of burning a teenager alive.

The police officer who killed Michael Dean, a young Black man, by shooting him in the head was still on the payroll more than a week after the latest instance of homicidal violence by law enforcement in Texas.
