Yesterday a grand jury declined to charge a Ft. Worth, Texas police
officer who killed a 72-year-old man on his own driveway after arriving
at the wrong address to investigate a burglary alarm.
The jury’s decision not to indict R.A. “Alex” Hoepper for the May 28
shooting death of Jerry Waller came after prosecutors presented 25 hours
of testimony over four days, according to the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram.
Waller died after Hoepper shot him seven times as the officer and his partner arrived at Waller’s house, mistakenly
thinking that the burglary alarm going off across the street came from
Waller had been walking down his driveway with his gun to investigate the alarm he heard from his neighbor’s house.
