Body camera footage released on Friday by a North Carolina police department shows a man had his arms raised to his side just before officers fatally shot him last month. Charlotte-Mecklenburg police released five videos from the incident, including two which show Rueben Galindo getting shot. Officers can be heard yelling at Galindo, 29, to drop a gun they said he was holding in his left hand before shots were fired Sept. 6. A still image taken from one of the videos shows a red circle drawn around Galindo's left hand, an indication by police that he had a weapon. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Kerr Putney told local media at the time that the man had called police and said he had a gun. Galindo refused commands to drop the gun, Putney said. The officers perceived a threat and fired, he said.
