Newly released video shows the dramatic and deadly officer-involved shooting which claimed the life of a crew member of the TV show "Cops."
Bryce Dion, 38, was fatally shot while filming the show in Omaha, August 2014.
The video shows Dion, who was a sound mixer, and a cameraman riding along with two Omaha police officers when they responded to a robbery call at a Wendy's restaurant.
Just as the officers enter the store they are confronted by the armed suspect who fires what appeared to be a handgun, but turned out to be a pellet gun according to investigators.
Cortez Washington, 32, was killed in the confrontation.
Authorities say Dion was accidentally hit by a police bullet even though he was wearing a bulletproof vest.
"He was holding his boom, fish pole up which then exposed the unprotected area, because he was wearing a ballistic vest," said Dion's friend, Hank Barr.
In the video, you see Dion slumped against a wall by his sound equipment.
A district judge released the video as part of a wrongful death lawsuit brought by Dion's brother who claims the police department was negligent during the deadly encounter.
The graphic video is expected to be a key part of the trial set to begin in July.
