Bodycam footage of officer involved in ‘ brake pad’ shooting (VIDEO)

The bodycam footage was recently released of the Albuquerque police officer involved December shooting of a man holding a brake pad.

APD officers responded to the scene after a woman called police, saying a man was hitting her car with his backpack. Shaine Sherrill raised his hand and pointed either a break pad or a knife towards police, but officers believed it was a gun and opened fire, KRQE reports.

Sherrill, who during a domestic violence call last year told officers he wanted to be shot and killed by police, has filed a lawsuit against the city after being shot by police.
