Deputy Shoots Army Vet During Wellness Check

( San Antonio Tx) A military vet with a history of mental illness was shot and killed after his family reported he was suicidal and suffering paranoid episodes. Damian Lamar Daniels, 31, was fatally shot by deputies during a mental health call on Tuesday. Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar said Thursday that Daniels and his family made four separate calls in the lead up to the shooting. Activists have rallied outside the Sheriff’s Office to protest Daniels’ death. Lexi Qaiyyim, an organizer with Young Ambitous Activists, said protestors do not believe officers are equipped to handle mental health calls.
