Carjacking Suspect Doesn't Know Why Police Officer Shot Him

Claims his hands were held up and that the cop said, "I'm sorry. I'm sorry."

A 19-year-old carjacking suspect shot by Dallas police last week said Tuesday that he had nothing to do with any crime and has no idea why the officer shot him as he held up his hands.

"She looked at me and I looked at her and she just fired," said Kelvion Walker, 19. "I'm like, what did you shoot me for? … She was like, 'I'm sorry. I'm sorry.'" Walker, who spoke Tuesday from his hospital room, has not been charged.

As Walker proclaimed his innocence, Dallas police arrested another 19-year-old man Tuesday in connection with the case. Authorities say Reginald Robertson confessed that he was driving the stolen Chevrolet Malibu in which Walker was a passenger when he was shot in the stomach on Dec. 9.

Robertson managed to escape moments before Walker was shot by Senior Cpl. Amy Wilburn. Robertson was charged with aggravated robbery in connection with a Dec. 8 carjacking and remained jailed Tuesday with bail set at $150,000.
