93-year-old woman dies from officer involved shooting in Hearne

HEARNE, TX (KXXV) - A 93-year-old woman was pronounced dead at a Bryan hospital after being shot during an officer involved shooting Tuesday night in Hearne.

Hearne officers were called out to the 1400 block of Pin Oak St. about 6:30 p.m., after receiving a 911 call about a disturbance involving a woman with a gun.

According to the Robertson County District Attorney's Office, officer Stephen Stem asked 93-year-old Pearly Golden to put her gun down, and then ultimately shot her. Golden was taken to St. Joseph Hospital in Bryan where she was pronounced dead.

Many members of the community described Pearly Golden, or Miss Sully as she was called, as a kind and sweet lady. A former city council member who knew Golden, says this happens too often.

"Under this existing chief, we have had too many incidents," said Michael Washington. "We can't solve murders, but we can create them. And they are coming from our police department. I really have a problem with that."

According to the Hearne Police Department, officer Stephen Stem has been placed on paid administrative leave, which is normal procedure for an officer involved shooting. Officer Stem was also involved in a shooting back in December 2012, that killed a 28-year-old man who was described as mentally handicapped. He was no billed by a grand jury.

The Texas Rangers, Hearne Investigators, and Robertson County District Attorney's Office are investigating the incident.
