Police officer shoots and kills man in Puerto Rico - video

Wow, blatent and brutal execution of a protester by a police officer who lost control.

Puerto Rican authorities said Sunday they are investigating a police officer who was caught on video apparently shooting an unarmed man to death at close range.

In footage first shown by Univision Puerto Rico, the officer, identified as Javier Pagan Cruz, is seen standing over a man lying face-down and shooting him at least three times — once in the head.

The shooting occurred Saturday when police responded to a traffic jam in the town of Humacao on Puerto Rico's east coast, police chief Pedro Toledo said. According to a police report, the victim, Miguel Caceres Cruz, got into a fight with police after insulting an officer.

During the scuffle Pagan's weapon went off, striking him in the leg, Toledo said. Pagan then allegedly wrestled Caceres to the ground and shot him while two other officers watched.

"He finished him off, yes, he executed him," Toledo told The Associated Press on Sunday. He called the incident "totally unacceptable and worrisome."

Just three hours before the victim was working in my church. He wasn't a member of our church but was the kind or people who liked to help everyone. He was a good friend of my Pastor and his son in law. On Sunday they gave us the news. We still can believe it!!!

This is an execution. Police Brutality. The last shot was in the neck. The people in the yellow shirt belong to a motorcyle club attending a Birthday Party in the town of Humacao. The people of Puerto Rico are in dismay. He has a 10 year old son and has no criminal record.

The man that was killed was arguing with the policeman for a traffic thing. During the struggle, apparently one shot came off accidently from the officer's gun but the shocking thing was that after that the policeman just went out of his mind and shot the man 4 more times until he killed him.
