Reason reports on another unarmed citizen killed by the police .

” On July 9, Houston police fatally shot Rufino Lara. Police are asking media and citizens to hold onto their opinions until the investigation

   Houston Police Department officials said Rufino Lara refused officer J. McGowan’s commands in
Spanish and English to stop when she spotted him walking away while she was investigating an assault Monday afternoon. He kept one of
his hands tucked under his shirt, police said. When he turned around suddenly with his hand
still under his shirt, McGowan shot him once, killing him, police said. “
