Unarmed man shot by officer in Friday shooting identified

WACO, TX (KXXV) -

A Waco man who was shot by a Waco police officer late Friday morning has been identified. Police say 46-year-old Michael Ray Hall was injured after police responded to a disturbance call at 11:08 a.m. at a home on the 3400 block of Forrester Lane on Friday.

Officers say neighbors called police about a man and woman who were screaming and cursing at each other in their home. When officers arrived they found a woman running outside yelling that Hall had a loaded gun.

When the officer entered the home Hall charged at one of them so the officer fired one shot and struck him in the lower jaw. Police later determined the man had fired the gun just before they arrived, but then put the gun in a closet in a bedroom.

Hall was taken to Hillcrest Baptist Medical Center where he is was in critical condition. Officers did say Hall was walking and speaking with ETMC personal during their assessment of him.

Sgt. Patrick Swanton of the Waco Police Department said, "Our officers did what they were trained to do and responded appropriately in the face of a deadly threat. At this point we are working on a police involved shooting where our officers have shot an individual."

The officers involved in the shooting have been identified as 23-year veteran Officer Hans Fitting and 14-year veteran Officer Don Patterson.

Sergeant Swanton added the incident took place in the same home as a 2001 murder. An elderly couple, Orville and Ruby Loving, were beaten to death in their home in May of 2001. Swanton says this latest incident is not related to the 2001 murder.

Police are investigating Friday's shooting, and do not know any other information about Hall's condition.
