Jesus Huerta died in the back seat of a police car from a gunshot wound through the mouth, police claim was self inflicted.
Huerta was cuffed after they received a call for a runaway juvenile and found that he had a previous warrant. Officer Duncan frisked Huerta by checking his pockets and jacket to check for weapons and found none.
Clayton said Huerta tried to drop his handcuffed hands behind his knees, and Duncan told him to stop. Huerta said he “had a wedgie” and was uncomfortable. Huerta continued to try to do that en route to the Durham Police Department, which was only a mile away. Duncan said he heard something rubbing in the back seat of the car.
Clayton said Duncan planned to check Huerta again once he reached headquarter, but on arrival, Duncan heard a gunshot in the back.
