“I saw everything, I heard everything “
Jason Walker Murder | A white man shot and killed a black man Saturday in Fayetteville, North Carolina. It was later revealed that the shooter and murderer is an off-duty deputy. As of today, his identity has yet to be revealed.
According to the official statement, Jason Walker, 37, jumped in front of the deputy’s truck. The deputy shot Walker and the victim died.
However, a female witness came forth. She can be seen in the video circulating on the net wearing a black hoodie and tending to Walker whom by then is lying on the ground dying.
The female witness went public in a video in which she addresses the community “I saw everything”, she says.
She explains that Jason Walker did not run or jump in front of the deputy’s truck. She claims that the deputy just came out of his vehicle and simply shot Walker.
She confirms that Walker was “not acting crazy or jumped into traffic,that officer, murderer, shot him”.
The shooting took place just after 2:15 p.m. on Saturday along Bingham Drive, when Jason Walker, 37, was struck by the truck of an off-duty Cumberland County sheriff’s deputy, according to a Fayetteville Police Department news release.
Walker was pronounced dead at the scene.
The police department said a preliminary investigation determined Walker “ran into traffic and jumped on a moving vehicle.
In a news conference Sunday evening, Police Chief Gina Hawkins said investigators examined the vehicle’s “black box computer, which logs speed, braking impact and other events.”
“That computer did not record any impact, with any person or thing,” she said. “We currently have no witnesses who claim that anyone was hit by this truck.”
Hawkins said “individuals at the scene indicated they did not witness the incident.” She added the department had spoken to a witness who claimed Walker was not struck by the vehicle.
Hawkins said she did not know how many times or where Walker was shot.
Investigators with the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation have taken the lead on the investigation at the request of Fayetteville police.
Cumberland County District Attorney Billy West said the North Carolina Conference of District Attorneys had been assigned to serve as an independent prosecutorial agency in the case.
Anyone who saw what happened should call State Bureau of Investigations at 1-888-624-7222, Hawkins said.
