CORPUS CHRISTI (KIII NEWS) - In an effort to remain transparent regarding the officer involved shooting that resulted in the death of Dewboy Lister, the Corpus Christi Police Department has released body cam footage of the incident.
It was shortly after 9 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 19, when CCPD Officer Jose Hasette pulled over 55-year-old Dewboy Lister and Lister ended up fleeing in his vehicle. Hasette caught up to Lister and pursued him on foot when a struggle ensued and Lister was shot.
Lister later died from his injuries after hours of surgery.
Officer Hasette's case went before a Grand Jury and he was no-billed.

"Being transparent while maintaining the integrity of this investigation has been and remains a priority for the Corpus Christi Police Department," Chief Mike Markle said.
Initially after the incident, Markle took immediate action.
"I invited the family of Mr. Lister, the District Attorney's Office, the Federal Bureau of Investigations, along with members of our media and community members of our coalition, to review body camera footage of this event," Markle said.
Five months later, police received clearance from the Texas Attorney General's Office to release body cam footage from that October night.
"It is my thought that releasing this video can be hurtful to those involved and possibly divisive to our community," Markle said. "It is my hope that this does not occur."
