Police release body camera footage of shooting 

With his rifle drawn, Fort Collins Police Services officer Matthew Brede shouted "drop it" to the man walking toward him with what appeared to be a handgun, newly released video footage of the Jan. 21 police shooting shows.

In the moments after, Brede fired his rifle 10 times, and Austin Snodgrass, the man in front of him, fell to the ground, suffering from three gunshot wounds. Snodgrass survived the shooting.

FCPS released body-mounted camera footage of the January shooting on Tuesday.

Larimer County District Attorney Cliff Riedel cleared Brede of any criminal wrongdoing in the incident in February, saying Snodgrass had admitted the standoff outside his Hastings Drive home was an attempt at "suicide by cop."
