1 deputy cleared in shooting, 2 fired for separate incidents

HOUSTON (AP) — Officials say a grand jury has declined to indict one Houston-area deputy for fatally shooting a man last year while two other deputies were fired for threatening a driver and punching a teenager during separate incidents. Prosecutors announced Friday a grand jury did not indict Harris County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Tu Tran for killing 35-year-old Joshua Johnson. Tran had told investigators Johnson had threatened him with a gun as the deputy was working undercover. Separately, the sheriff's office announced two others deputies _ Eric Sanchez and Bert Dillow _ were fired. Officials say Sanchez threatened to kill a driver during a traffic stop while Dillow punched a teenager during an arrest.
