Family of Charles Roundtree, teen killed by SAPD, raises questions as new footage surfaces
It’s been more than two years since 18-year-old Charles “Chop” Roundtree was shot and killed by San Antonio Police Department Officer Steve Casanova. The fatal encounter — from the moment Officer Casanova approached the porch until he fired two shots into the home — was less than 45 seconds. So how did you feel threatened?”The Roundtree family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the San Antonio Police Department. City Attorney Andy Segovia released the following statement:“This case has been thoroughly investigated and presented to the grand jury, which declined to indict Officer Casanova. The video, which news outlets have previously aired publicly, depicts Officer Casanova responding to a residence in response to an assault call.
