Authorities in Texas said that they shot and killed a handcuffed man on Monday who was attempting to steal one of their vehicles.
According to a press release from the Texas Department of Public Safety, 24-year-old Joshua Omar Garcia refused to stop his 2013 Toyota car on Monday when a Lynn County Sherriff’s Office (LCSO) tried to pull him over. After a car chase, Garcia’s car collided with a sheriff’s office vehicle.
“Garcia was taken into custody and placed inside a LCSO Tahoe,” the statement said. “While officers were processing the vehicle, Garcia slipped the handcuffs from the rear to his front and tried to steal the LCSO Tahoe.”
Deputies opened fire, injuring Garcia. He was later pronounced dead after being flown to University Medical Center in Lubbock.
The Lynn County Sherriff’s Office have asked the Texas Rangers to assist in the investigation. It was not immediately clear why deputies had to resort to deadly force to stop an attempted car theft.

Meghan McCain baffles co-hosts by instantly contradicting herself on Fox News and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
Meghan McCain described "The Squad" of first-year Democratic lawmakers as the "face" of the party -- and then complained when co-host Sunny Hostin pointed out that's how Republicans and Fox News were trying to portray them.
Hostin called President Donald Trump a racist for telling the lawmakers -- Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib -- to go back to their home countries, and co-host Joy Behar said he was "stupid" for launching those ugly attacks.
"I don't think he's stupid," McCain countered, "but I don't think he's politically astute at all because the politics of this -- on Friday night the progressives and Nancy Pelosi was full 'Gangs of New York'-style fighting with one another on Twitter. It was fascinating to watch."
Kellyanne Conway blows up on Fox: ‘We’re sick and tired of many people in this country’ who support Democrats
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Tuesday railed against the four Democratic lawmakers who were the subject of racist attacks from President Donald Trump during a testy interview on Fox News.
When asked by host Bill Hemmer whether it was wise for the president to launch attacks against the lawmakers at a time when he could be touting a positive economic message, Conway replied that he should be talking about them because "we're sick and tired of many people in this country" who are being represented by Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (R-MI).
Kellyanne Conway flips out after Fox News asks her about her Trump-hating husband
During a Fox News interview with White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, Fox anchor Bill Hemmer tried to ask her about her husband, Trump-skeptic conservative lawyer George Conway, who just publicly called President Donald Trump a racist — and Conway was not happy.
"We're tight on time," said Hemmer. "Your husband penned a piece in the Washington Post. The title, 'I denied that Trump is a racist. Not anymore.' You've seen it. Do you agree with your husband?"
