He reportedly tried to intervene in a couple’s scuffle. When officers arrived on the scene, Price was who they shot.

A Texas man called a pillar of his community was shot to death by police after trying to break up a fight between a man and woman at a gas station. 

Witnesses say that Jonathan Price tried to break up the disagreement inside the store, but it spilled outside, and when officers responded to the scene, Price was the one they shot.

Price, 31, was a former athlete employed by Wolfe City, which is about an hour away from Dallas. He also worked as a fitness trainer.

His mother, Marcella Louis, said that she was in bed when she was called about the shooting. She said she rushed to the gas station, but the police wouldn’t allow her to see her son.

“I just wanted to hold his hand, and they wouldn’t let me do that,” Louis said to WFAA of Dallas. “I just wanted to crawl over there to him.”
