A carjacking victim claims the people who stole his car were armed, and police were justified in shooting at them.
A Dallas police officer was recently fired for wounding Kelvion Walker. The 19-year-old said he was unarmed.
But Jeremy Leatch, who was carjacked outside a Pleasant Grove convenience store last month, told FOX 4 Walker was one of at least four men who robbed him at gunpoint.
"Kelvion, the dude who's claiming who got shot, he looked at me eye to eye and he shot at me, pop pop, with like a 9 millimeter," Leatch said. "I really feel for the officer. I feel like she was just doing her job. These guys were armed and dangerous. They can't go around robbing people."
Dallas police said in a statement that Leatch could not people out a shooting during a photo lineup.
"Observing Kelvion Walker on television after being shot by police and identified as a passenger in the vehicle could be considered a prejudicial identification for the purposes of developing a strong prosecution," police said.
Police said the investigation into the carjacking is still ongoing and whether Kelvion Walker was involved is still part of that.
