Angel and Day continue to argue off camera. A Taser can be heard, then Angel is heard ordering Day, “Put your hands where I can see them, now!”
The Department said Angel did use a Taser and said it had no effect on Day.
Police said Angel chased Day who, at one point, put a hand on his gun.
In the video multiple gunshots can be heard and then Angel tells dispatch shots were fired. Angel asks for EMSA and shouts, “Stay back, he’s got a gun!”
Police and witnesses confirmed Day did not fire any shots.
Officer Angel can be heard giving commands to Day and telling him, “I’m gonna help you buddy. I’m gonna do the best we can.”
Day asks why he was shot and Angel says, “You got a gun you pulled on me, that’s why.”
Day was shot at least twice and taken to the hospital in critical condition, police said.
Angel is on paid leave during the investigation.
