The Latest: Deaf man’s family calls for officer’s arrest
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The family of a deaf man shot and killed by an Oklahoma City police officer is calling for the officer’s arrest and for independent state and federal investigations into the shooting.
The family of 35-year-old Magdiel Sanchez issued a statement Friday through their attorneys.
The family also accused Oklahoma City police Chief Bill Citty of rushing to release information before an investigation is complete in an effort to “taint the investigation in his officer’s favor.”
Police have said officers who responded to a hit-and-run accident Tuesday night encountered Sanchez holding a metal pipe.
