A revelatory new video clip from a different angle clearly shows Alton Sterling did not pull a weapon on the Baton Rouge cops who shot him to death.The cellphone video, posted Wednesday afternoon on The Daily Beast website, clearly showed one of the two officers plucking the gun from the right pants pocket of the dying man.
“F—!” one of the cops screams after the shooting as Sterling, 37, lies flat on his back with blood seeping from a chest wound. The victim is still moving and waves his right arm as the cops take his gun.
shooting occurred with Sterling pinned to the ground by the two Baton Rouge officers.
Triple S Food Mart owner Abduallah Muflahi provided the video to The Daily Beast. An earlier 48-second video, shot from the parking lot, did not include the shot of the cop taking the gun away from Sterling.
Baton Rouge station WAFB-TV obtained the dispatch tapes from before and after the shooting early Tuesday outside a convenience store.
“Suspicious Code 2 gun in his pocket,” the police dispatcher said prior to the cops’ arrival. “He pulled a gun on a complainant, told him he couldn’t be around there.”
The second call was coming in from the scene after Sterling was mortally injured.
“Shots fired, shots fired!” the cop shouts “Both officers OK. Suspect down. I need EMS Code 3 (ASAP).”
