Ex-Dallas cop indicted in last year’s shooting of unarmed civilian

Former Dallas, Texas police officer Amy Wilburn was indicted by a grand jury on Thursday, April 24 on charges of aggravated assault for shooting an unarmed man, an incident that was caught on police dash camera, in December 2013.

Wilburn was terminated from her post as a police officer three weeks after the incident took place.

The dash camera video had footage of police officers chasing two carjacking suspects. At the end of the chase, one of the suspects was seen getting out of the vehicle and continuing to run on foot, with one officer following.

Wilburn was then seen going up to the vehicle, and fired upon seeing that a person was inside the car.

The victim, nineteen-year-old Kelvion Walker, spent several days in the hospital as a result of the shooting.
