Harrowing body camera footage has been released which shows police shoot dead an emotionally disturbed young woman who was armed with a gun.

Ciara Howard, 26, was shot by police in August after a three-hour standoff in which she refused police orders and pointed a gun at officers at a home in Olathe, Kansas, America.

The bodycam video, released on Tuesday following a lawsuit by the Kansas City Star , shows the last deadly minutes of the standoff in which she barks at a dog, trembles visibly and refuses to believe that the people in the house are legitimate police officers.

A court ruled that the killing in a laundry room at Ms Howard's boyfriend's home on August 23, was a justified shooting but the case has raised questions about police strategy.
