Missouri, USA: A 25-year-old woman was fatally gunned down by a sheriff’s deputy during a traffic stop.
The parents of the girl are not buying with the claims that the woman had threatened to shoot the officer first.
25-year-old Hannah Fizer was driving to her work on the evening of Saturday when she ran a red light and was stopped by the police.
According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Fizer told the deputy that she had a gun and threatened to shoot him, which prompted the officer to open fire on her.
She died a short time later.
John Fizer, the father of the 25-year-old victim, said that their daughter never carried a gun.
The father also does not believe that she would have become aggressive with a police officer.
The father said:
She liked to drink and smoke a little weed sometimes, but by no means was she violent. She was the kind of person that wouldn’t hesitate to give a homeless person $10.
Lori Fizer, the stepmother, said that Hannah never carried a weapon with her.
We need to know exactly how everything went down. She weighed a whole 145 pounds and she was by herself.
Authorities said that it is still unclear whether Hannah had a gun with her.
A warrant to search the vehicle was pending when the incident happened.
Patrol Sergeant Andy said that there was no available dashboard camera or body camera footage of the fatal encounter of the entire incident.
A report by the New York Post mentioned that the deputy that was involved in the fatal shooting of Hannah Fizer has been placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of the victim.
