A customer who shot and killed a masked robber at a southwest Houston taqueria earlier this month has been heralded by many online as a hero. However, not all in the Houston community feel that way. A group of local activists is now calling for the 46-year-old shooter, who police have not named, to face criminal charges, opining that the shooting went beyond self-defense and was a “cold-blooded execution.”
Over the weekend, the group, which included members of the Texas Coalition of Black Democrats, Rainbow, PUSH Coalition, and New Black Panther Nation, gathered outside of the Ranchito Taqueria, where the shooting took place on Jan. 5, to call for legal action against the shooter. They clarified that they are not condoning the actions of the robber, who was later identified as 30-year-old Eric Eugene Washington, but said he deserved to be punished and sent to jail—not killed.
