Woman Shot By Texas Cops In Friend’s Home Is “Reminiscent” Of Breonna Taylor Shooting, Crump Says

Civil rights attorney Ben Crump compared the weekend police shooting of Eboni Pouncy in Texas to Breonna Taylor’s terrible death, highlighting the unsettling similarities.

Pouncy was shot by Harris County Sheriff’s Office deputies early Saturday morning in her friend’s home, according to Crump. Crump’s description of the incident differs greatly from the police’s.

Crump claims Pouncy and her friend broke a window to enter the apartment after being shut out. Pouncy grabbed her registered gun to deter an intruder. However, authorities shot her five times shortly after.

Despite Crump’s claim, the Harris County Sheriff’s Office said they were investigating a probable apartment break-in. Deputies saw a woman with a gun in Pouncy’s friend’s apartment after seeing a smashed window. Pouncy was shot by two deputies.

Crump expressed solidarity with Pouncy and her family and stressed the necessity of comprehending the shooting in a statement. He demanded police accountability and justice for victims like Breonna Taylor, who was shot in 2020.

No charges had been filed for Eboni Pouncy’s shooting as of Tuesday afternoon. Crump’s advocacy highlights the ongoing fight for police brutality and excessive force accountability.
