The Factor has learned the disabled man who was shot and killed by a Houston Police officer last month has had a very violent encounter with the cops once before.

We have obtained an internal HPD memo through open records that shows Brian Claunch had a physical altercation with a police officer back in 2006.


In a significant event report created by the officers involved, Claunch is described as hostile and combative.

The report shows the officer responding to a trespassing call involving Claunch even had to tazer him to get him under control.

Officers reported the wheelchair bound man attempted to kick and hit at them before they could get him into their police unit.

That encounter came six years to the month before the double amputee was shot and killed by HPD officer Matt Martin.

Police were responding to a disturbance call a at Houston group home when they encountered Claunch once again.

The most recent incident is under investigation by HPD and the FBI.
