Flores says he didn't try to threaten police

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Wednesday, 43-year-old Domingo Flores took the stand and apologized.  Flores is on trial for aggravated assault, after police shot him in May of 2007.

Authorities say Flores threatened his family and fired a gun into the air. Officers say he ignored repeated commands to drop the weapon, and when he pointed the gun at them, one officer fired. Wednesday, Flores admitted he messed up and told the jury police were forced to shoot him.

He says he spent 3-weeks in the hospital where he almost died. Flores says doctors had to remove his kidney and he suffered damage to his colon, liver and stomach. He says he doesn't remember that day and his first memory is waking up in the hospital. Still, Flores contends he never tried to threaten police.
