NORTH HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (KABC) -- The Los Angeles Police Department released new body camera footage of a police shooting in North Hollywood.
The incident happened last month on Laurel Canyon Boulevard when a hatchet-wielding man, identified as 52-year-old Francisco Javier Alba, approached police.
The man was shot and transported to the hospital in stable condition. Police say he had been damaging the inside of a nearby business before they confronted him.
Officers say they tried to negotiate with him and used less-than-lethal options, but when those didn't work, they say they were forced to use their guns.
