Arlington officer involved in fatal shooting released – CBS Dallas/Fort Worth

Arlington, Texas (CBSDFW.COMThe police group announced Friday that one of the Arlington police officers involved in this week’s fatal shooting among officers has been shot.

“I call on the department to reverse this hasty decision today and immediately reinstate this officer,” said Officer JP Mason, president of the Arlington Police Association.

The shooting took place on Wednesday afternoon after a slow chase that ended in stalemate. When the suspect began driving toward the police, an officer fired his service weapon, hitting the suspect, identified as Jesse Joseph Fisher, 40, of Addison.

Fisher was taken to the hospital but died.

“They pass judgments without giving time for a full investigation,” Mason said. “The department needs to allow a thorough investigation and review of all facts before taking such punitive action against the officer.”

Mason said the administration needs to do more before firing an officer.

“We’re jumping to conclusions here, it’s been less than 48 hours,” Mason said. “A thorough investigation cannot be completed without interviewing all witnesses and addressing all evidence.”

The association believes that the department’s actions will put the officer and his family at risk.

“We need to slow down and make sure we have all the facts and the law is followed when it comes to officer rights,” Mason said.

The Texas Joint Law Enforcement Association says a dismissed officer has a right to due process.

“What is clear is that the officer was trained by the Arlington Police Department in law, stalking and lethal force policy,” said Charlie Wilkinson, CEO of CLEAT. He continued his training because he believed that his life was under direct threat. This is a political shooting by an administration that is openly washing its hands of any connection to this vetted, hired and trained officer.”

CBS11 has reached out to Arlington Police for comment. The agency announced a press conference at 3:00 p.m. on Friday.
