Body Cam Video Shows Cop Shooting Man Dead After Complying With Demands

 

 

 

 

 

 

” At :46 of a minute into the video, Salt Lake City police officer Bron Cruz is ordering a man to remove his hands from inside his pants.

  At :50 into the video, the man removes at least one hand from inside his pants, lifting up his shirt, showing no gun.

  At :51, the officer shoots him dead.

  That was enough for Utah prosecutors to justify the shooting of 20-year-old Dillon Taylor outside a convenience store August 11.

  The shooting was captured on the officer’s body cam. Prosecutors say the video showed his other hand remained inside his pants but it’s not clear in the video.

  According to the Associated Press:

  Officer Cruz yells, “Get your hands out now,” pointing his gun at Taylor. “Get your hands out.”

“ No fool,” Taylor responds, before lifting up his shirt with his left hand — his right hand in the waistband.

“ Get ‘em out,” Cruz yells even louder.

  Then, he fires two shots. Taylor crumbles to the ground, hit in the chest and stomach. He died at the scene. “
