Video released of man in ‘shooting stance’ fatally shot by El Cajon police (VIDEO)

Following public outcry and days of civil unrest, the El Cajon Police Department released video Friday showing last week’s fatal encounter between two officers and a mentally ill man.

Alfred Olango, 38, was shot dead by police after he was acting erratically, then quickly plunged his hands into his front pockets before assuming a “shooting stance.” As it turned out, Olango didn’t have a gun but rather a vaping device which he held like a gun.
