Kevin Valenzuela’s by all accounts a model teenager, so why did he end up on the wrong end of an officer’s gun Friday afternoon?
He invited a 15-year-old friend over to lift weights. As it turned out, that friend was wanted on a juvenile warrant, and someone told Haltom City officers they could find him at Kevin’s house “They came to my house looking for someone, and my dog ran up to the officer barking, and the officer said he was going to shoot the dog, and he shot two times,” said Kevin.
Doctors were unable to remove the bullet, more surgery may be ahead. But Kevin resisted condemning the officer responsible, other than to say he is a bad shot.
