Ashlee Clark started this petition to Killeen Police Department

WE THE PEOPLE ARE TIRED OF BEING KILLED BY THE ONES WHO SHOULD BE SERVING AND PROTECTING US.

WE THE PEOPLE DEMAND JUSTICE. 

" I TOLD YOU, DON'T USE A GUN"

"HANDS UP MENTAL HEALTH DOES NOT MEAN DEATH"

PLEASE UNDERSTAND THIS IS TO RAISE MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS AS WELL

Doorbell video shows the moments leading up to when a Black man was shot and killed by a Killeen police officer on Sunday, January 10th.
The video shows 52-year-old Patrick Warren Sr. come out of his house and approach the officer while waving his hands.
National civil rights attorney Lee Merritt, who's working with the family, said they called police to ask for a mental health professional when they noticed changes in Warren's behavior. Merritt said the family was told a mental health deputy was not available, so a police officer was sent.

The video then cuts to another shot that shows Warren get back up and continue toward the officer. Someone from the house can be heard telling Warren to sit down, and asking the officer not to shoot him then three gunshots are fired out of view of the camera.
According to Merritt, the officer shot Warren once, then pointed the gun at Warren's wife, telling her to get back. Merritt said the officer then fired his weapon at Warren again.
 

The family of Patrick Warren Sr. demands the immediate firing and arrest of the officer responsible for his death along with the Body camera footage.

Bobbie Warren, Warren Sr.'s wife, issued a statement Thursday, which calls for Contreras' arrest.
"Our family is still finding our bearings following the murder of our beloved Patrick Warren, Sr. We are grateful for the outpouring of love and support from the community. Patrick was a loving husband, father and devoted man of God. As we deal with the pain of this sudden loss we are asking the community to join us in honoring his name and demanding justice. Patrick spent his entire life serving others. He worked at a local plant in Belton, TX before it was shut down due to the pandemic. He immediately launched a landscaping business to continue to provide for our family. We expect Officer Reynaldo Contreras to be arrested immediately. There is more than enough probable cause for the Killeen Police Department, Texas Rangers or the Bell County District Attorney Henry Garza to issue a warrant for Contreras' immediate arrest and detainment - as would be expected for any other citizen under the circumstances."
