On Friday, July 10th, 54-year-old James Michael Todora was fatally shot by Officer Brian Kroening. The police in Las Vegas have released bodycam footage which shows the moments leading up to the shooting.

Todora was stopped by Officer Carlos Luna while he was driving an SUV. He became agitated when he was pulled over for a broken tail light and complained about police involvement in a previous domestic situation with his wife.

Todora continued to argue with Officer Luna, then said that he had a gun to shoot himself. This caused the officers to scramble as the driver aimed the gun.

In the end, Officer Evan Hogue was hit by gunfire and Todora was killed.
