Those punks are lucky they’re not in hell right now.
As Luna pulled up to the scene and saw the three, one of them, in a gray sweatshirt, is seen on dash cam looking back and seeing Luna. Then, it appears the teen moves something near his waistband.
“That’s what, in law enforcement, we call a furtive gesture,” said Duncanville Assistant Police Chief Brian Heard. “It’s highly concerning, particularly given the comments on this call.”
Luna exited his squad car, yelling commands at the teens.
Luna: “Hey! Get your hands up now! Get your hands up now! Get on the ground! Get on the ground now! Get on the ground!”
Teen wearing gray: [inaudible]
Luna: “No, I don’t care! Get on the ground!”
Teen wearing gray: “Look, it’s fake…[inaudible]”
Luna: “Get on the ground now! Don’t! Get on the ground now!”
The trio was not obeying commands.
“They’re fixing to either pull the gun out or they don’t really care what…what I’m saying,” Luna said he was thinking as the incident was happening.
Even though the teen said the gun was fake, Luna wondered if “he just trying to distract me looking at him, and these two could pull out a weapon. I’m not for sure.”
“And your heart’s pumping now?” asked FOX 4’s Shaun Rabb.
“Yes, it is,” said Luna.
Chief Heard says that even though the teen approached Luna with his hands up, the officer was at a disadvantage, because action always beats reaction.
“Even though the officer has his gun drawn, he’s on target,” said Heard. “If this man chooses from this position to draw and fire, he can draw and fire before the officer can see that, perceive that and stroke that trigger.”
Finally, the teen follows instructions and goes to the ground.
