Video Shows Huntington Beach Police Officer Fatally Shooting Man Outside 7-Eleven | 9-22-2017

A video posted on Twitter Friday morning showed a Huntington Beach Police officer shooting a man multiple times who later died in a hospital. The 17-second video of the incident was posted to Twitter just after 9:30 a.m., and it shows an officer firing multiple times at a man. Reports from the Huntington Beach Police Department state that the male individual outside the 7-Eleven got into an altercation with an officer. The officer then fired at the man, who was later taken to the hospital with unknown injuries. Police have yet to release any more details, but it has been confirmed that the man died of his injuries. His identity has yet to be released.

A few additional seconds of the video show the officer struggling with the man who is lying on the pavement. The man appears to take something off of the officer’s belt before the officer pulls away and fires at him. Two witnesses described the event but withheld their identities. They state the officer approached the man, who then swung a punch at the officer. Then the man and the officer ended up on the ground, and the man tried to grab what appeared to be the officer’s magazine clip. It is still not clear whether or not the officer fired live ammunition or nonlethal rounds.

A female employee of the 7-Eleven was grazed by a bullet fired by the officer. Nearby Marina High School, at 15871 Springdale S was placed on lockdown as a result of the incident. Some students were reported to have left school after the lockdown was over, stating they were too disturbed by the shooting to return to class.
