Video from RMG News shows a man in a white minivan holding a gun and aiming it at his head in the area where the shooting took place. The man shook his head and rocked back and forth before moving forward.

As the minibus slid toward them, the officers seemed to say, “Don’t” before opening fire.

Asked about whether the suspect was holding a gun to his head, Gomez said officers “were still watching video and actively investigating the crime scene.”
