Huntington Beach Shooting Video

Huntington Beach, CA – Video was captured of an officer-involved shooting where a Huntington Beach police officer fatally shot a suspect on Friday morning. The video is below (WARNING: GRAPHIC.)

The incident happened at around 9:30 AM Friday morning when an officer made contact with a man at the 7-Eleven at 6012 Edinger Ave, according to LA Times.

The suspect and officer ended up in a ground-fight, the tail-end of which was captured on video.

In the video, you can see the officer on top of the suspect and the officer appears to be trying to get control of the suspect’s left arm.

The suspect then uses his right hand to grab something off of the officer’s belt.

The officer then glances down and sees the suspect holding the object. The officer then jumps off the suspect, creates space, and opens fire. The suspect was transported to the hospital and later pronounced dead.

At this point in time we do not know what led to up the shooting or what object was pulled from the officer’s belt.

At this point we can only speculate, and we will need to wait until more facts come out on this shooting.

An unconfirmed witness report states that they believe the suspect pulled out the officer’s magazine. Initial witness reports are often unreliable and this should be taken with a grain of salt.

If this is the case, it’s possible that the officer was not aware that the magazine had come from his belt. When he looked down he would have only seen that the suspect he was fighting with was suddenly in possession of a loaded magazine, indicating he had a gun.

The suspect also could have removed a knife, baton, or pepper spray from the officer’s belt. However, at this time none of this information has been confirmed.
