Off-duty police were part of the Capitol mob. Now police are turning in their own.

  Off-duty police were part of the Capitol mob. Now police are turning in their own. There’s been a notable break in the so-called “blue wall of silence,” an aspect of police culture that encourages officers to ignore misconduct by their peers. At least 13 off-duty law enforcement officials are suspected of taking part in the riot, a tally that could grow as investigators continue to pore over footage and records to identify participants. Police leaders are turning in their own to the FBI and taking the striking step of reminding officers in their departments that criminal misconduct could push them off the force and behind bars.

In the video, Contreras can be seen letting himself into the home after he is told by someone inside to "come on in." Contreras quickly exits after Warren begins to yell and advance towards him.

Warren can be seen outside a residence advancing toward the officer in the front yard and ignoring verbal commands for him to lie down. After the officer steps backward and continues to issue warnings, like "You're gonna get tased," he uses his taser.

Warren initially falls down but then stands back up and continues to push toward the officer. Contreras uses the taser again, but Warren keeps advancing and Contreras deploys his firearm.

Warren, who was 52, was transported to a hospital and succumbed to his injures.

Contreras, a five-year veteran of the department, is on administrative leave, according to the Killeen Police Department. An investigation is underway by the Texas Rangers, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety.

Bell County District Attorney Henry Garza directed all inquiries to the Texas Rangers.

Police Chief Charles Kimble said this week that Contreras did everything he could to use non-lethal force against Warren before he deployed his firearm.

"I don't see where he could have done anything else. I saw an officer try to handle a call, de-escalate a call," Kimble told reporters on Tuesday.

"Given the same set of circumstances, I just don't know what else we could do," he added.

Kimble said Contreras had more than the minimum amount of mandated training, but he said the police department was looking at ways to better address psychiatric calls.

On Saturday, January 9, one day before the shooting, the county sent a mental health deputy to Warren's house. Merritt previously told CNN that the meeting with the county deputy went well. Warren voluntarily went with that deputy to the hospital that night but declined to stay at the hospital for further treatment.

When the family called for another mental health check the next day, a police officer was dispatched. According to Merritt, the family wanted a mental health deputy again, rather than a police officer.

Asked why a police officer was deployed on Sunday, Kimble said the call taker raised concerns about what they heard on the call from the family.

"It was a call for a psychiatric person," Kimble said. "But as the call taker was listening to the caller, if certain things are said, or certain things are heard, then it prompts a different response...It prompted a police response, and it prompted a response from fire and medics who were standing by."

CNN has reached out to the Killeen Police Employee Association for comment but has not yet heard back.

Police chief, officer under fire after bodycam video surfaces with racial slurs .
A Hamilton, Georgia, police chief and an officer are under fire after bodycam video surfaces with racial slurs and explicit language. The off-camera speaker presumably makes reference to the June 2020 fatal police shooting of 27-year-old Rayshard Brooks, who was shot after allegedly grabbing a police officer's Taser, following a struggle during a field sobriety test. The incident led to BLM protests, the resignation of Atlanta Police Chief Erika Shields and the firing of Officer Garrett Rolfe.
