This is the lat­est story in a se­ries about of­fi­cer­in­volved shoot­ings of un­armed peo­ple in Texas. Eva Ruth Mo­ravec, a for­mer re­porter for the San An­to­nio Ex­press-News and the As­so­ci­ated Press, has ex­am­ined the re­ports that must be filed on such shoot­ings with the Texas at­tor­ney gen­eral’s of­fice un­der a state law that went into ef­fect Sept. 1, 2015. In the first year un­der that law, Mo­ravec found, 20 per­cent of the peo­ple who were shot were un­armed. Her work also re­vealed at least a dozen shoot­ings that hadn’t been prop­erly re­ported to the state.
