A 41-year-old Vidor man was killed in an officer-related shooting late Friday afternoon, July 11, after his family called Vidor police for assistance

According to the deceased man’s mother, Anna Greer, her son Joe Greer was upset about ending a relationship and angrily slammed the door of the home they shared on Cady Street in Vidor, breaking the door and shattering the door glass.


An officer responding to a family disturbance shot and killed a suspect who was brandishing a knife and reportedly threatened officers at a residence in the 3800 block of 29th Street on Friday, Nov. 1.
