An HPD officer peeks out of a door at City Hall as activists call for answers from city officials on why a police officer on Saturday fatally shot Brian Claunch, Tuesday, Sept. 25, 2012, outside City Hall in Houston. Claunch, a wheelchair-bound double amputee living in a group home for the mentally ill, was shot and killed by Houston Police in the early morning hours Saturday. Police say HPD officer Matthew Martin shot and killed Claunch, who was waving an object in his hand that turned out to be a pen. (AP Photo/Houston Chronicle, Johnny Hanson)
