California Shooting: Second video shows suspect punching officer prior to gunfire

A second video emerged Saturday from Friday's police-involved fatal shooting outside a convenience store in Southern California.


Fox News:


The new video, posted on Facebook and YouTube on Saturday, appears to show the still-unidentified suspect throwing punches at a police officer during a physical confrontation, prior to the gunfire.
The video shows the officer appearing to shoot the suspect with a stun gun after the suspect refused to comply with an order to sit down. Seemingly unfazed by the stun gun, the suspect then charges at the officer and appears to repeatedly punch him before being wrestled to the ground.

While on the ground, the officer can be heard shouting, “Let go of my gun!” although it doesn’t appear that the officer ever lost control of his weapon during the scuffle.
The deadly shooting occurred Friday morning outside a 7-Eleven store in Huntington Beach, in Orange County, south of Los Angeles. The store is located across the street from a high school, the Orange County Register reported.
The clip shows the suspect grabbing something from the officer’s belt while struggling on the ground, followed by the officer drawing his gun and backing away.
A previous video shows the suspect jumping to his feet and being almost immediately shot. The officer fires six rounds before shouting, “Get on the ground!,” followed by a seventh round that sends the suspect stumbling backward and collapsing against a wall.
The officer can be heard speaking into his radio, saying, "The suspect is down."
