COLTON, Calif. (KABC) -- Authorities have released body camera video that shows the moments that led up to a deadly shooting in Colton involving a suspect wanted in a series of armed robberies.

Authorities say David Genereux opened fire on deputies just as a woman came out of the home. They then returned gunfire.

Genereux died at the scene. No deputies were injured.

Investigators say several weapons were recovered from the scene.
