    ARLINGTON — A neighbor who said he witnessed the moments before an off-duty Houston police officer fatally shot an 18-year-old Monday said he saw the teen grabbing for a gun and heard the officer repeatedly identify himself.

    The neighbor, who asked not to be identified for fear of retaliation, said he saw what he believed to be a long-barreled revolver in the waistband of Clevonta Reynolds, who died of gunshot wounds.

    “He just kept pacing back and forth behind a car and wouldn't follow the officer's orders,” the neighbor said Tuesday. “You could see he had a gun in the front of his baggie pants.”

    The Houston officer was identified as Rafael Baez. Baez has been a Houston police officer for nearly 17 years and works in the city's Northeast Patrol Division.

    According to police, Baez was inside a residence with relatives when they heard what sounded like a vehicle slamming into a parked vehicle outside the house and then driving away. Baez and others ran outside and chased the vehicle to try to get its license tag number when they came upon a fight, Arlington police spokeswoman Tiara Richard said.

    There, a person who had left the house with Baez had some kind of encounter with people at the intersection. At that point, Baez stepped in, Richard said.

    Richard confirmed that a weapon was found on Rey*nolds' body.
