The family of a man shot and killed at a local pharmacy in north Houston is demanding an independent investigation into his death…

Investigators say 37 year old Dante Chavful was at the Walgreens on Antoine and Veteran’s Memorial Saturday night when employees recognized him as someone who passed bad checks.

Deputies with Harris County say an off duty Prairie View police officer, who was working security, tried to stop him and that’s when Chavful ran from the store. 

The officer says he tried to taser the the 37 year old and that didn’t work. 

The officer also says Chavful tried to run him over in a car in the parking lot of the store…That’s when investigators say Chavful was shot and killed.
