The assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moïse appears to have been partially caught on camera — with the dramatic clips revealing the sound of multiple gunshots and scenes of armed men following the ambush.
“DEA operation! Everybody stand down!” someone with an American accent is heard saying in English over a loudspeaker in footage first shared by the Miami Herald.
“DEA operation! Everybody back up, stand down!” the warning continued, according to footage filmed around 1 a.m. Wednesday by one of the president’s neighbors in the hills above Haiti’s capital, Port-au-Prince.
An Eyepress video provided by Reuters also caught the sound of more than 30 gunshots ringing out, with a barking dog the only other audio in the background.
A group of heavily armed men was also filmed by a neighbor standing around the president’s home in Pelerin 5, with one person forced to lie face-down in the middle of the road.
