The Grand Rapids Police Department in Michigan released several videos on Wednesday of the fatal police shooting of a Black man during a traffic stop this month.
The videos, from a body-worn camera, an in-car camera, a cellphone and a home surveillance system, show the final moments of Patrick Lyoya’s life.
Taken together, the videos — played during a news conference on Wednesday — show the moments before Lyoya’s death, his initial interaction with the officer who pulled him over, the fatal shooting and the moments after his body appears to go limp on the front lawn of a home.
Dashcam video from the officer’s car shows Lyoya pull over in a residential neighborhood on a rainy morning with the officer coming to a stop behind him. Both Lyoya and the officer, who has not been publicly identified, exit their vehicles.
The officer can be heard in video from his body camera telling Lyoya to get back in his car and asking for his driver’s license.
Lyoya, who remains outside the car, asks the officer several times what he did wrong and asks a passenger in the car to retrieve his license.
The officer, according to the body camera video, says Lyoya was stopped because “the plate doesn’t belong on this car.”
In the seconds that follow, Lyoya appears to walk away and the officer appears to try to restrain and handcuff him. Lyoya then runs away and the officer chases him, eventually pinning him to the ground.
The two struggle and the officer can be heard saying “stop” and “stop resisting” several times.
The officer, who appeared to have unholstered his Taser, also yells at least five times for Lyoya to either “let go of the Taser” or “drop the Taser,” according to cellphone video captured by the passenger in Lyoya’s car, the only one of the four videos to clearly capture the shooting.
That video shows the officer pin Lyoya down to the ground once more, with a knee to his back, grab his gun and shoot Lyoya in the back of the head while he is facing down.
