On Thursday, February 8, Arlington Police made available body camera footage from the shooting involving an officer. That day, during a traffic check, a police officer shot and killed a person.

What Happened?

The fatal shooting victim was given several chances to comply with the directions of the officers, but she refused, according to Arlington Police Chief Al Jones.

Last Thursday, the officer claims to have attempted to pull over 49-year-old Sean McKay for having a piece of plastic covering his license plate on I-20 westbound close to Green Oaks.

McKay veered to the other side of the road, cutting through several lanes before coming to a stop.

It smelled like marijuana, according to the police, and he refused to turn off the car and get out when the officer requested him to several times. A nearby Kennedale policeman noticed the traffic stop and pulled over to provide assistance. Backup was being sent since the APD officer had requested it.

Who Is The Suspect?

When we questioned Chief Jones about whether the shooting was appropriate or whether the police had other options for desecration, he replied that each case is unique.

McKay has a criminal past and has previously been accused of capital murder and weapon violence.

According to Jones, the officer is still the subject of two active investigations. One is criminal in nature, and the other is administrative in nature, checking to determine if the officer conducted the traffic stop in accordance with protocol.

The identity of the officer would remain confidential until those investigations are finished. According to the police, the officer was placed on administrative leave while more investigation into the incident is carried out by Internal Affairs and the homicide unit.
