The death of Titus Latchison, a troubled Army veteran who threw knives at police outside his Killeen home in 2014, was ruled a homicide.
Latchison, 37, a sergeant who got out of the Army at Fort Hood in 2011, was shot by a Killeen police officer on April 4, 2014, outside his home in the 4500 block of Golden Gate Drive in Killeen. Latchison died Sept. 4, 2015, at the Veterans Affairs hospital in Temple. An autopsy was performed by the Southwestern Institute of Forensic Sciences at Dallas.
Although Latchison died almost a year and a half after he was shot by police, the institute found that the injuries caused by the shooting resulted in his death.
“Based on the case history and autopsy findings, it is our opinion that Titus Romale Latchison, a 37-year-old male, died as a result of the sequelae of remote gunshot wounds,” according to the autopsy report.
