Police bodycam footage from Fresno, California, shows 34-year-old Raymond Gonzalez shot during a police chase in 2016.
Officer Zeb Price’s body camera video shows the foot chase culminating in an alley when Gonzalez tossed away a gun but fell to the ground right near where it landed. Gonzalez touched it a couple of times before rolling over onto his stomach, as ordered. When he spun back around, Officer Price fired a fatal shot. Gonzalez’s family sued the city over the shooting, but a federal judge threw it out.
The video shows Price running after Gonzalez, who at one point discards a backpack. As Gonzalez runs down an alley, he tosses a gun onto a roof, but the gun lands on the ground. At that point, Price fires one round at Gonzalez and misses him.
Gonzalez tumbles to the ground, rolling over and sitting back up as Price shouts demands at him.
At one point Gonzalez puts his hands up while laying down, but he also moves his arms and brushes the gun. He continues to shift positions on the ground, briefly rolling onto the gun, while Price shouts demands.
Price fires the second round after Gonzalez reaches toward his waistband. The second round hits Gonzalez in the chest, fatally wounding him.
