Texas police shoot NH man who had BB gun


PALESTINE, TEXAS - Texas Police killed a N.H. man this weekend after a report of a robbery at a Walmart according to KYTX.

Police report that they arrested James Bushey, 47, without handcuffs after finding him hiding in a nearby Applebees bathroom. Police say Bushey broke free of their custody, and displayed a gun.

Police shot Bushey before realizing his weapon was only a BB gun.

"He's a good brother," Bushey's brother Jeff said to KYTX. "He's going to be missed."

A grand jury will decide if the two involved officers were justified in shooting Bushey. In the meantime, the police officers have been placed on administrative leave.
