HOUSTON, Tex. –– Nationally renowned civil rights and personal injury lawyer Ben Crump has issued the following statement in response to the release of police body cam footage in the shooting of Eboni Pouncy, a woman who was shot five times by Harris County Sheriff’s Deputies on Feb. 3 in her friend’s home.
Attorney Crump issued the following statement:
“The shooting of Eboni Pouncy should have never happened, and this newly-released body cam footage is evidence of the unnecessary and excessive force used against her. The video shows the deputies that responded to Eboni’s friend’s house shot first and asked questions later. It is concerningly clear by the video and Eboni’s injuries that deputies were not justified in shooting her five times. We demand that the deputies involved be immediately held accountable for the terrible injuries that Eboni suffered due to their impulsive actions.”
