The Texas police officer accused of fatally shooting one teen and injuring another while he was off duty has been charged with murder and aggravated assault.
Officer Ken Johnson was arrested Wednesday in connection with the death of 16-year-old Jose Cruz. He was reportedly shot Sunday at a gas station in Addison, a town north of Dallas.
Police said Monday it all started when Johnson noticed a vehicle was being burglarized in the parking lot of his apartment complex. He reportedly chased after the suspects in his car, which eventually led to an "altercation."
