In the video, you can see several officers surround Barnett's house for about an hour until he finally came outside with his hands up. A group of officers can be heard commanding Barnett to keep his hands up and walk towards them before eventually handcuffing him.

This arrest happened in July after police say a process server went to Barnett's house to serve papers and Barnett shot him. Barnett claimed it was self-defense but a judge ruled there was enough evidence for Barnett to stand trial for shooting with intent to kill.

The video also shows the process server talking to police in an ambulance, minutes after being shot.

"I turned around and started walking away and 'Boom!' I dropped the paperwork and my left arm went numb," he said.

The man said he didn't know he was in danger until it was too late.

After Barnett was arrested for the shooting, he was arrested again on suspicion of threatening a mass shooting at the University of Tulsa.
