Copperas Cove, TX — As TFTP reported last week, Lecresha Murray trip to the hospital was dangerously interrupted when a trigger happy cop decided to dump multiple rounds into her body for no reason. Despite the officer shooting the unarmed woman six times that Sunday, he was not immediately arrested. However, all that has changed and Copperas Cove police officer Eric Stoneburner was charged with aggravated assault in the shooting of Murray.
According to police, Stoneburner resigned just before turning himself in.
“As a department, we cannot support Mr. Stoneburner’s decision to use deadly force in the moment and manner in which he did,” Copperas Cove Police Chief Eddie Wilson said in a statement Friday. “The law, and our department policies, limit the use of deadly force to situations when an officer reasonably believes that he or a third person are in imminent and immediate danger of death or serious bodily injury. “
As we reported last week, Murray was shot six times by this crazed officer who was apparently in a fit of road rage when he pulled the trigger. Luckily, she wasn’t killed.
“I’m a victim that got shot by an off-duty police officer that did not identify himself,” Murray said. “For no reason, I didn’t approach him, I didn’t threaten him. I don’t do anything. He just opened fire for no reason.”
According to Murray, she and the off-duty Copperas Cove police officer got into an argument on that Sunday as she drove herself to the hospital. She reportedly made a U-turn in front of the cop who decided to launch a pursuit and stalk the woman while off-duty.
