A man who killed a Houston Police officer 14 years ago received a lethal injection Wednesday evening after his appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court failed.

Jeffrey Demond Williams, 37, gave a brief, angry statement before the death penalty was carried out, saying, "You clown police ... Y'all are getting away with murder all the time. When I kill one or pop one, y'all want to kill me."

Williams fatally shot Houston Police Officer Troy Blando while the officer was handcuffing him on May 19, 1999. Williams shot the 39-year-old officer with a gun he had tucked in his shirt. He was stopped while driving a stolen Lexus, reports the Associated Press.
