Cops lied about where they murdered him -- his body, shot multiple times, was found in his garage. Perps: Richard A. Hoeppner, Benjamin B. Hanlon Victim: Jerry Waller, "retired businessman, grandfather, and veteran" WFAA: Family of man fatally shot by Fort Worth police disputes details (May 28 2013) The family of a 72-year-old homeowner killed by police said Wednesday they were "disturbed" by the way the Fort Worth Police Department presented the man's death to the media. The city's mayor promised a "full and transparent investigation" of the case. Jerry Waller, who police said was armed with a pistol, was shot to death in or near his garage about 1 a.m. Tuesday. The incident began when an alarm sounded in the house across the street from Waller's on North Havenwood in east Fort Worth. Police officials said Tuesday it wasn’t clear how two responding officers — identified by police as Richard A. Hoeppner and Benjamin B. Hanlon — ended up at Waller’s house. They encountered him with a pistol inside or near his garage. One or both officers opened fire, hitting Waller multiple times. Officials said the officers — both of whom graduated from the police academy last November — identified themselves to Waller, but felt threatened. "When I went out there, the place was totally dark," said Kathy Waller, the victim's wife. "All I could see were flashlights.” She said her husband might have mistaken the officers for burglars, just as they apparently mistook him for a suspect. “They just came down my driveway, flashing lights, and he thought it was burglars going after his car,” Mrs. Waller said Tuesday night. The family released a statement Wednesday that said they were "deeply troubled by the police department misrepresenting details of the incident in their interviews with the media," and that Jerry Waller's body was found in his own garage.
