Texas Man in Own Garage Killed By Police Responding to Burglar Alarm Across Street

"Officers felt threatened"


FORT WORTH, Texas — Kathy Waller never imagined that when Jerry Waller went to find out what was causing a ruckus outside their garage early Tuesday morning, it would be the last time she would see her 72-year-old husband alive.

"Married 46 years, and then somebody gets a little trigger-happy and away they go," she told News 8.

Fort Worth police said the shooter was one of their own.

Officers were responding to a burglar alarm off North Havenwood Lane when they ended up on the Waller's property.
