(Hearne, TX) -- People in a tiny Texas town are demanding to know why a police officer shot and killed a 93-year-old woman. A candlelight vigil was held last night in honor of Pearlie Golden in her hometown of Hearne , near College Station. Golden was killed Tuesday night during a confrontation with Officer Stephen Stem. Police say Golden was holding a gun and refused to put it down. It isn't the first time Stem shot someone to death. He killed a man in December 2012, but was cleared by a grand jury. He's currently on administrative leave.
