RICHMOND, Va. — The Latest on the fatal shooting of a man by Richmond police (all times local):
Body-camera video of the fatal shooting of an unarmed man by a Richmond police officer shows the man emerge naked from a car and dash onto a highway, where he flailed erratically on the ground before running toward the officer.
Police Chief Alfred Durham on Friday released the video of 24-year-old Marcus-David Peters' fatal shooting earlier this month.
The video shows the officer first used a stun gun when Peters approached him. Police say it was not effective and the officer then shot Peters twice in the abdomen.
Durham also played surveillance video that showed Peters drive away from a downtown hotel where he worked part time. Police say he was involved in three hit-and-runs before the encounter with the officer.
Peters' family has already seen the video. Peters' sister has said it shows her brother was clearly in distress and needed help.
