Investigators Say Jonathan Price Tried to Shake the Hand of the Cop Who Shot Him. That Cop Has Now Hired Amber Guyger’s Attorney

People gather for a march, rally, and candlelight vigil in honor of Jonathan Price on October 5, 2020 in Wolfe City, Texas. Wolfe City Police Officer Shaun Lucas was charged with the fatal shooting of Price on October 3, 2020, after Price allegedly tried to end a domestic dispute.
Police body camera footage revealed new details about what had happened between 31-year-old Jonathan Price and Police Officer Shaun Lucas in Wolfe City, Texas, in the moments leading up to Price's fatal shooting. Price attempted to shake Lucas' hand at the beginning of their confrontation, according to an affidavit from the Texas Rangers investigating the shooting.

But before we dive into any of this, we really need to talk about the defense attorney Lucas kept - because he's the same attorney who represented Amber Guyger, the former Dallas cop found guilty of murder and up to 10 years was convicted after the shooting and killing Botham Jean in his own apartment.
Robert Rogers seems like a man who's all about giving cops the benefit of the doubt. The same attorney who argued in the opening speeches that media nationalism is the only reason people didn't see Guyger as a perfectly innocent woman who went into the wrong apartment and was so terrified that she shot an actually innocent black man is now killing A tale for his new client that seems to leave out much of what investigators actually said on the night of October 3rd.
"After Mr. Price refused repeated instructions and physically resisted, Officer Lucas used his taser and continued to give instructions to Mr. Price," Rogers said in a statement Tuesday evening, CNN reported. "Mr. Price resisted the effects of the taser and attempted to take it from Officer Lucas. Officer Lucas only dismissed his weapon in accordance with Texan law when faced with an aggressive assailant who tried to take his taser."
According to the Texas Rangers, bodycam footage tells a much broader story.
From ABC News:
22-year-old Lucas responded to a domestic dispute at the gas station's supermarket around 8:24 p.m. Saturday according to the affidavit. Price's family says Price tried to resolve the dispute and did not threaten anyone.
Based on the Bodycam footage that has not been released to the public, the affidavit states that Price greeted him when Lucas arrived at the scene and "Officer Lucas came very close and asked several times if you were doing good?" While holding his extended hand in handshake gesture. "
"Price apologized for broken glass on the floor and said someone had tried to wrap me up," the affidavit said.
Lucas told investigators that he thought Price was drunk and tried to arrest Price, but Price allegedly said, "I cannot be arrested," the affidavit read.
The officer then tried to arrest Price "by grasping his arm and using verbal commands," but was unsuccessful, the affidavit said. Then, according to the affidavit, he presented his taser.
Lucas warned Price to do it or he would use his taser, and when Price left the officer fired the taser, the affidavit said.
While being cursed, Price walked up to Lucas and tried to reach for the gun. At this point the officer took out his service weapon and fired four times according to the affidavit.
Lee Merritt, the attorney who represents Price's family, wonders why Lucas - who was charged with murder in connection with Monday's shooting - had to use force in the first place given the disturbance he was called on the spot to be reportedly over when he got there.
"The situation was resolved before prosecution, according to witnesses," said the attorney, CNN reports. "Why this officer still felt the need to curse and shoot Jonathan is incomprehensible."
