SAN LEANDRO, Calif. (KRON) — The San Leandro Police Department has released body cam footage of the deadly officer-involved shooting that occurred at Walmart on April 18.
The police department released body cam video from both officers involved, along with the 911 call in a debriefing video posted on Wednesday.
Officers responded to reports of a person brandishing a bat and a possible robbery at the Walmart at 1555 Hesperian Blvd around 3:12 p.m.
When the first officer arrived, he determined there was no robbery attempt, but the man had a bat in his hand so he tried to detain him.
Police say the man was not cooperative, so the first officer tried to taze him but was unsuccessful. After failing the second time, the officer shot the man in the chest.
The man died at the scene.
He has been identified as 33-year-old Steven Taylor. Read More
