A lawyer representing the family of a Black man who was killed by police over the weekend said the former college football player was trying to stop a domestic assault at a gas station in northeast Texas when cops shot him to death.

Lee Merritt identified the man as 31-year-old Jonathan Price, a beloved “hometown hero” who once played football at Hardin-Simmons University.
