Harker Heights,TX - Bell County Sheriff’s Cpl. Shane Geers shot and killed Lyle P. Blanchard, 59, of Harker Heights, after a failed traffic stop and pursuit Aug. 30 2016.
Geers was cleared of possible criminal charges by a Bell County grand jury Feb. 15, after the completion of the Texas Rangers investigation.
According to testimony transcribed in the report, Geers said Blanchard refused to respond to verbal commands after Blanchard stopped his vehicle and shouted obscenities at the deputy through his open driver’s-side window.
The dashcam footage shows Blanchard appearing to step from the vehicle with his left arm behind his back momentarily, then move both hands toward his front right cargo shorts pocket. While Blanchard reached inside that pocket, Geers fired his weapon.
