Sacramento Police release video from officer-involved shooting near Sac State

Sacramento Police released body camera footage Monday of officers fatally shooting a 22-year-old man last week at an apartment complex near Sacramento State.

The video shows a tense confrontation between police and Jeremy Southern on July 21. Southern is seen pointing a gun at officers for 90 seconds. Officers gave 28 commands for him to drop the gun before firing at Southern twice.

The cell phone video shows Southern being hit in the abdomen and falling to the ground. The gun falls a few feet in front of him to his right.

The woman who had been walking with Southern lays down on the ground after officers command her to get down. She continues to cry and scream and Southern rolls over on his right side. As Southern begins to crawl back toward the gun, the woman screams for him to stay down.

Southern was transported by the Sacramento Fire Department to a local area hospital where he later died of his wounds, the Sacramento Police Department said.
