Louisville police release surveillance video from David McAtee shooting
Authorities in Louisville released surveillance footage on Tuesday afternoon that they said appeared to show David McAtee, a popular business owner fatally shot dead by police Monday, firing first at law enforcement in the moments before his death.
McAtee, 53, died in a fatal exchange with police and National Guard soldiers in the early hours of Monday morning as authorities were attempting to enforce a curfew in the city amid ongoing protests and riots in response to the death of George Floyd.
Two separate videos, taken from inside and outside of McAtee’s Yaya’s BBQ, show the restaurant owner and several other people walking in and out of the building as police officers and National Guard arrive on the scene.
At one stage, McAtee is seen leaning out of the door of the building, raising his arm upward out of frame, before staggering backwards clutching his stomach and collapsing to the ground.
It Isn’t clear from the footage what McAtee – if anything – is holding in his hand when he leans around the doorway. A second angle shows smoke emanating from where McAtee was stood. via Daily Mail
