Video footage of a deadly shooting was
released this week by the Coeur D'Alene Police Department in Idaho.
The footage was taken from a body
camera worn by Officer Spencer Mortensen.
In the video, a man armed with a knife
is seen approaching Officer Mortensen. Despite repeated requests
to drop the knife, the man continued to advance on the officer.
Finally, the officer fires five times.
The suspect died from his injuries.
Officer Mortensen was later cleared of
any wrongdoing by the Bonner County Prosecuting Attorney.
