House of Coleman 901 West Alabama • Houston 77006 • (713) 523-2521 GAY ACTIVIST KILLED BY POLICE Edited by Breakthrough from an article by Craig P. Rowland. This article was reprinted with the permission of Upfront America. Frederick William Paez, 27, Secretary for the Houston Gay Political Caucus, was shot and killed early Saturday morning, June 28, by Houston Police Officer K.M. McCoy. Along with a raid on Mary's Lounge during which 61 were arrested only a week earlier the killing has seriously damaged relations between the police department and the gay community. Paez, a bus driver, was shot in the back of the head while in the presence of two off-duty officers in the 2400 block of Capitol. The police report of the incident reads as follows: Press Release "This morning [June 28] at approximately 2:30 a.m., 2400 Capitol street at the Best Delivery Service, Officer K.M. McCoy along with Officer S.A. Cain were outside the building as Officer McCoy was working an Extra Job at this location and Officer Cain had come by to visit. Both Officers were off duty and dressed in blue uniform trousers and white tee shirts. They work Central Patrol second shift. "While outside a Black Cadillac drove by several times and then stopped and a white Male engaged the Officers in a conversation. After a short while the Officers along with this WM who was later identified as Frederick William Paez, 27 years of age and a Bus Driver, all went to the side of the building at the suggestion of Mr. Paez and upon arriving there Mr. Paez then approached Officer McCoy and touched Him between His legs. "After the WM touched the Officer, the Officer pulled His Police identification and told the WM that He was a Police Officer and that the subject was under arrest. Officers had intended to arrest this subject and charge Him with Public Lewdness. After the Officer had told the WM he was under arrest. He backed away from the Officer and the Officer reached and took this WM and turned Him toward a vehicle parked there and had Him put His hands on this vehicle so that a search could be made of the WM's person and at that time the Officer had His pistol in His hand and the arrested subject reached back and grabbed the gun and after a short struggle the pistol discharged striking the arrested subject in the upper portion of the rear of his head on the left side. Mr. Paez was taken to Ben Taub Hospital where He expired at 3:20 a.m. this Morning. The single gunshot was fired from Officer McCoy's 45 Automatic Pistol. Officer S.A. Cain was near but was not involved in the actual shooting as Officer McCoy was holding the pistol. This preliminary investigation by the • BY CRAIG P.ROWLAND- Homicide Division at this moment indicates that the Officer's weapon discharged accidently as He was trying to arrest Mr. Paez and Mr. Paez resisted. The investigation is continuing by the Homicide Division of this Department, the Internal Affairs Division of this Department and the Civil Rights Division of the Harris County District Attorney's Office. Prepared by Det. W.L. Young Homicide Division" To investigate the circumstances surrounding the death, the gay community elected a 5-member task force consisting of Sue Cummings, Debra Danburg, Lee Harrington, Ray Hill, and James Kuhn. It is anticipated that the need for the committee could continue for several years. The committee acquired the consultation of Arthur B. Alphin, a firearms expert, for the press conference held Tuesday, July 1 at Metropolitan Church of the Resurrection (MCCR). Alphin, who has over 20 years experience with firearms, demonstrated the functions of a .45 automatic handgun, the type used in the killing. During his demonstration Alphin said, "This weapon does not go off accidentally." He continued, "To load this weapon and point it at a human being with the safety off constitutes a high disregard for the life of that person." Alphin was not necessarily suggesting intent to kill, but that there was a high degree of negligence on the part of the officer. Officer McCoy has been suspended from duty pending the outcome of the investigation. On Tuesday evening, July 8, a memorial service was held for Paez at MCCR. According to MCCR Rev. Chuck Larsen, about 350 attended the Episcopal service. Although Paez was a member of Christ Cathedral, he "attended MCCR services fairly regularly. The funeral itself was closed to the public by family request. Religious leaders of various denominations spoke, and letters were read from Congressman Mickey Leland, the Metropolitan Community Churches in Dallas and Los Angeles, Universal Fellowship Offices, Washington, DC, and from Metropolitan Community Church founder Rev. Troy D. Perry. Over $600 was collected for the Fred Paez Memorial Fund, established as a scholarship fund to aid a lesbian or gay man interested in working in law enforcement. Donations may be mailed to the Fred Paez Memorial Fund, Houston Gay Political Caucus, PO Box 3887, Houston, TX 77001. Officials who have expressed their support of a thorough investigation of the case include City Councilpersons Eleanor Tinsley, Lance Lalor, and Dale Gor- czynski, as well as City Controller Kathy Whitmire. At the rally following the gay pride parade Sunday, June 29, Tinsley said that she expected an investigation to be conducted to the satisfaction of the entire community. HOUSTON BREAKTHROUGH
