HOUSTON (AP) A Houston police officer shot and killed a one-armed, one-legged man in a wheelchair Saturday inside a group home after police say the double amputee threatened the officer and aggressively waved a metal object that turned out to be a pen.

Police spokeswoman Jodi Silva said the man cornered the officer in his wheelchair and was making threats while trying to stab the officer with the pen. At the time, the officer did not know what the metal object was that the man was waving, Silva said.

She said the man came "within inches to a foot" of the officer and did not follow instructions to calm down and remain still.

"Fearing for his partner's safety and his own safety, he discharged his weapon," Silva told The Associated Press.

Police did not immediately release the name of the man who was killed. They had been called to the home after a caretaker there called and reported that the man in wheelchair was causing a disturbance.

The owner of the group home, John Garcia, told the Houston Chronicle that the man had a history of mental illness and had been living at the house about 18 months. Garcia said the man had told him that he lost a leg above the knee and all of one arm when he was hit by a train.

"He sometimes would go off a bit, but you just ignore it," Garcia told the newspaper.

Silva identified the officer as Matthew Jacob Marin, a five-year veteran of the department. He was immediately placed on three-day administrative leave, which is standard in all shootings involving officers.

Houston police records indicate that Marin also fatally shot a suspect in 2009. Investigators at the time said Marin came upon a man stabbing his neighbor to death at an apartment complex and opened fired when the suspect refused to drop the knife.

On Saturday, Marin and his partner arrived at the group home around 2:30 a.m. Silva said there were several people at the house at the time. The caretaker who called police waited on the porch while the officers went inside, she said.

"It was close quarters in the area of the house," Silva said. "The officer was forced into an area where he had no way to get out."

being in a wheelchair does not exempt you from being that stupid.

actually. How could a cop, 2 feet away, mistake a pen for a gun or knife?

anyways, we live in a police state. You don't conform, you die.

Not sure how you let yourself get cornered...by a dude in a wheel chair...I'm usually on the cops side, but obviously more info is needed here. Cuz it just sounds impossible that you could be in fear of your life from a dude who is stuck in a freakin' chair with no means of even getting out of the chair. Have your partner grab the chair handles and you know...move the guy...

Cop Kills Double Amputee “No Charges Filed”

Recently, Houston Police Officer Matthew Marin was “no-billed” by a secret grand jury in Harris, Co. Texas which led to charges not being filed on this cop who executed Brian Claunch. Claunch was a double amputee confined to a wheelchair. He suffered from bi-polar disorder and schizophrenia which he was in the home of care takers designed to tend to his needs. Officer Marin claimed he felt his partner was in danger of Mr. Claunch who was merely waving a pen. This is the second time Officer Marin has killed a Houston citizen and has yet to be held accountable for this matter.
