Here’s Bodycam Footage Of Police Fatally Shooting Man With His Own Gun
This incident occurred in Roy City, Utah, in February 2017. It clearly depicts a suspect being shot by police in the line of duty. The content of the video below is graphic and may not be suitable for all viewers. Body camera footage released shows the altercation from the perspective of both officers. The entire encounter lasted approximately one minute, but the time between when the officers first saw that the suspect had a gun, to the last shot fired, is only twelve seconds. The suspect in this case would still be alive if he had complied with the police officers commands.
Roy City Police released video of a deadly exchange between two Roy City police officers and a trespassing suspect at a gas station in February. Two unidentified officers were in a fight with Nicolas Sanchez, 39, in the parking lot of the Texaco Station at 4395 South 1900 West when several shots were fired and Sanchez was hit.
One of the officers who shot Sanchez did so with a gun that he had grabbed from Sanchez seconds earlier. Attorney Heather White was hired by Roy City to explain the video prior to releasing it to the media. White said the officer who shot Sanchez with his own gun thought Sanchez may have had a second firearm and decided to use the suspect’s own weapon against him after his partner had already fired shots at Sanchez.
