Shocking Body Camera Footage
He is calm as FUCK on the comms. The best I've ever heard. Yelling his lungs out at the "subject", firing his gun and one second later sounding like he was telling a bed side story. I bet dispatch enjoys talking to him.
Poor Junior's father. If only Lopez had been in California
when he decided to engage in terminal stupidity. As an
Hispanic, the cops would have been wrong, no matter
what. Governor Brown would have arrested the cops,
given the family millions in tax dollars and allowed the
family to bring 50 relatives up from Mexico for life.
Las Vegas Metro police released body cam video of the officer involved shooting that left one man dead. The shooting happened on Friday morning near the 200 block of Madge Lane as those officers were headed to another call. Officers say they noticed a car driving recklessly, so they pulled the car over. That%u2019s when video shows the driver, identified as 22-year-old Junior David Lopez, get out of the car with a gun%u2014and immediately drop it. But two other passengers in the car said that they recall how this unfolded differently. Lopez%u2019 girlfriend, Amber Bustillo and her friend, Kimberly Gonzales, were in the car. They said they heard Lopez say he had a gun with a permit. They also said he had it in the holster the whole night. Gonzales said she remembers seeing him toss the gun towards the back tire. Metro officers say that Lopez told officers to shoot him, twice.
But Bustillo and Gonzales said they heard him say, %u201CDon%u2019t shoot me,%u201D before shots were fired. Despite being given commands to stay away from the gun, Lopez then got to his knees and reached for it. Both officers fired at least 2 rounds, Striking Lopez. Even after he was hit, Lopez continued to reach for the weapon, forcing one of the officers to fire another shot, hitting him. Lopez later died at the hospital. Lopez%u2019 father said he will meet with Metro officers on Wednesday to take a look at the video and judge for himself what happened. He also said he would like witnesses to come forward and share their account. This is the fifth officer involved shooting for metro police in 2018, and the third to turn deadly.
