Yvette Smith Shot/Killed By Police

47-year-old Yvette Smith was shot and killed by a police officer in Bastrop, Texas on Sunday. A deputy with the Bastrop Sheriffs Office, Daniel Willis, was allegedly the officer who shot her. It was first reported that Smith was shot because she had a gun, but after further review it now appears that she was not armed. Police were dispatched to the home, because they received a call that two men were fighting outside over a gun. When deputies arrived the two men left the scene and as deputies were attempting to clear the house, that is when Smith was shot and killed. Deputy Daniel Willis joined the Bastrop Sheriffs Office in 2013. He as been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation. Read more by clicking the image above.
