Video to come out of 1st fatal NYPD shooting since bodycams”

The footage shows the deadly confrontation between police and a Bronx man, 31-year-old Miguel Richards, a college student studying information technology.

The video shows an officer shining a flashlight on Richards as Richards kneels on his bed wearing dark glasses and holding a knife.

The NYPD released footage Thursday afternoon of officers fatally shooting a man armed with a knife and a fake gun in his Eastchester apartment.

The NYPD began outfitting officers with body cameras in April, with the 47th Precinct getting the devices in early summer. A friend of Richards is also heard repeatedly begging "put your hands up dude!" I know you face a variety of hard situations every day and that, overwhelmingly, you successfully resolve them without resorting to any level of force at all.

The third officer then holds up his yellow stun gun and walks into the room as his fellow officers open fire, killing Richards. Transparency is one of the many ways this department can continue to keep and build on the trust each of you has worked so hard to earn from members of the community all across our city. "We are reviewing each incident on a case by case basis", the message said, stressing this is not a formal policy. Still, the PBA warned of a "dangerous precedent".

When officers arrived at the door, Mr. Richards met them with a knife in hand, according to a written account the Police Department released.

It is reportedly the first fatal NY police involved shooting captured on body cameras.

Even before the video was released, the president of the city's largest police union, Patrick J. Lynch, claimed that the release "sets a unsafe precedent that jeopardizes police officers' due process rights and confidentiality protections under state law." Mr.

All of your hard work, diligence, and discretion have pushed crime to record-breaking lows in New York City, and drastically cut the number of enforcement actions, uses of force, firearms discharges, and subjects wounded and killed. The release of the footage came over the objection of Bronx District Attorney Darcel Clark, who preferred to wait until her investigation was complete. "Notwithstanding, I still have an obligation to protect the integrity of the investigation into this shooting".

The NYPD released seven files of the footage, some edited and some showing the continuous sequence of events from one camera or another.
