TANGIPAHOA PARISH, LA (WAFB)- The 9News I-team has spent the past several months combing through never before seen and some recently released interrogation tapes and depositions. They're all in a case involving a Tangipahoa Sheriff's deputy with a deadly shooting of an unarmed teenager.
"It's fixing to get out of hand when they find out what happened. Give us some cars up here," said Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Sgt. Schirra Finn.
It was a desperate call for back-up after a deputy shot and killed an unarmed 18 year old man.
It all unfolded in the early morning hours of Aug. 11, 2012. As Club 81 in Tangipahoa was shutting down, fights broke out. Security called for back-up and deputies Koven Banks and William Phebus were among the first on scene. They were told a man had a gun. When deputies asked for him to show his hands, he took off running.
According to witnesses, three deputies chased the man down West Railroad Avenue, also known as Hwy 51. He turned down Jackson Street and fell. Two of the deputies got on top of him. As they were trying to handcuff him, Cjavar "Dee Jay" Galmon ran up from in between three cars.
