Charles Payne testified this morning in his death penalty trial for allegedly shooting and killing a Dallas police officer that after asking who was at the door and not hearing a response, he got his gun from under the couch. He then cracked opened the door and it hit him in the face.
Payne said he did not know who was on the other side and thought he was being robbed. He said no one yelled "Police" or "gang unit."
He shut the door and fired four times through the door.
