Court Documents Offer New Details into Albemarle Co. Police Shooting

July 22, 2013

New details have emerged about what police say happened the moments before an Albemarle County police officer shot a man in Charlottesville.

Josue Salinas-Valdez was shot in the stomach by Officer William Underwood back in May.

He spend more than a week in the hospital, and just last week had the bullet removed.

Police requested the bullet, so they could compare it to Underwood's gun.

Court records say that Salinas-Valdez punched Officer Underwood in the face three times, and stole his baton.

Records also indicate that he could not be controlled, despite being shocked with a Taser twice.

Officials say Underwood shot Salinas-Valdez while he was charging at him with the baton.

Salinas-Valdez's lawyer has not returned calls for comment.

His trial is set for February.
