An overview of a 1992 incident in which Harris County, Texas, sheriff's deputy Kent McGowen shot and killed Susan White, whose son he had previously arrested on a gun-related charge. McGowen claimed that he reacted after she pointed a gun at him. A Houston jury believed otherwise, however, and convicted him of murdering White in a 1994 trial. That verdict was thrown out on a technicality; a second trial in 2002 arrived at the same outcome.
