Flagstaff police release body-cam footage from fatal shooting 

Police identified Flagstaff resident John Hamilton as the man who allegedly brandished a gun at officers and refused to drop the weapon after several minutes of instruction by officers on scene.

In the footage released Monday, officers Daniel Beckwith and Travis Rowden can be heard telling the man to drop a silver object they described as a handgun.

Hamilton was swinging the weapon around and pointing it at the officers, Flagstaff police said.

Beckwith repeatedly asked Hamilton to drop the gun for nearly three minutes before firing, the footage from his body camera shows. A shadowy figure can be seen in the distance moving.

You can clearly hear that the officer does not want to shoot .... go to 7:30
