Danville, Calif. (KTVU) – Danville police released body camera and dashcam footage of a deadly officer-involved shooting that happened last year.
Laudemer Arboleda, who was mentally ill, died after being shot numerous times by Officer Andrew Hall.
Danville police spotted Arboleda leaving the area in a Honda. They tried to stop him, but he took off.
He ended up near the corner of Diablo and Front Street in downtown Danville. Police say he tried to drive in between a gap between two police cars. Then Hall opened fire.
Hall told investigators he fired because he believed Arboleda would run him over and kill him.
After Arboleda was shot, he drove off but crashed into another car. He died at a hospital from a gunshot wound to the chest.
