A former Hardin-Simmons University football player was reportedly killed by police after intervening in a domestic situation at a gas station.
According to WFAA, police in Wolfe City, 70 miles northeast of Dallas, shot and killed Jonathan Price on Saturday night.
Witnesses told the Dallas ABC-affiliate that an argument broke out between a couple inside a convenience store.
They said Price tried to break up the fight.
The fight ensured outside, and when officers responded, Price was the one they shot.
“He had a good heart. He always tried to help others,” said Price’s mother, Marcella Louis. “They took my son from me. They took my baby.”
In June, Price posted on Facebook that he had never had a negative encounter with police.
“There were times I should have been detained for speeding, outstanding citations, outdated registration, dozing off at a red light before making it to my garage downtown Dallas after a lonnng night out,” Price said. “I’ve passed a sobriety test after leaving a bar in Wylie, Texas by 2 white cops and still let me drive to where I was headed, and by the way they consider Wylie, Texas to be VERY racist. I’ve never got that kind of ENERGY from the po-po.”
“Not saying black lives don’t matter, but don’t forget about your own, or your experiences through growth / ‘waking up,’” said Price.
