Lyndo Jones: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

Lyndo Jones

A 31-year-old man is in the intensive care unit at a Texas hospital after he was shot by Mesquite Police Department officers in a shooting that his attorneys say was not justified.

Lyndo Jones was wounded when he was shot in the back on November 8 in the 1300 block of South Town East Boulevard, the Mesquite Police Department told KTVT-TV. While police have called Jones a car burglary suspect, his attorneys, Lee Merritt and Justin Moore, said Tuesday that he was shot after accidentally setting of the alarm on his own pickup truck. Jones was not armed, police confirmed Tuesday.

“Another unarmed BM (black male) shot by cops, in stable but critical condition,” Merritt said on Twitter.

Merritt said on Facebook that Jones was “shot twice attempting to shut off his car alarm,” and then placed “under arrest with no criminal charges,” chained to his hospital bed and denied family and attorney visits while being “unconstitutionally questioned by department that shot him.”

Officer Derick Wiley shot Jones, police said. Wiley has worked for the Mesquite Police Department for 10 years.

“I’ve not seen any clearer case of constitutional violations,” Merritt said. “Not only do you have the excessive force where the client was shot, unarmed in his own car, accused of being a burglary suspect and the media misled that this man was shot during a burglary, he was then detained in the hospital, his family was denied access to him, they were not given, as he was fighting for his life, any updates on his medical condition. His doctors said they were not allowed to give updates. And now he is being denied counsel and literally hidden. I couldn’t imagine anything be more blatantly violative of the constitution.”
