NORTH CAROLINA-Lieutenant Jeffrey Hash shot and killed a 37 year old man [Jason Walker] Saturday; who according to him, jumped on his windshield. Contrarily, an on-looker vouched a totally different story. The witness says Hash, the driver, actually hit the man, which is how the victim ended up on his windshield.
Authorities on Tuesday released the 911 call from Hash.
“I had a male jump on my vehicle and break my windshield. I just shot him,” Hash told the dispatcher in the nearly four-minute call. “He jumped on my vehicle. I just had to shoot him.”
Hash said that as he was driving, Walker “came flying across Bingham Drive running.”
Civil rights Attorney Ben Crump told Daily Beast that he will be representing the family of Jason Walker.
“We stand committed; with the family and the young son that Jason Walker left behind, to finding answers as to what happened to him when he was senselessly shot and killed by off-duty deputy Jeffrey Hash,” Crump said.daily beast
“We have reason to believe that this was a case of ‘shoot first, ask later,’ a philosophy seen all too often within law enforcement. We look to the North Carolina SBI [State Bureau of Investigation] for a swift and transparent investigation so that we can get justice for Jason and his loved ones.”daily beast
