At first Green acts as if he doesn't know what is happening.

"You understand why you're down here right now right?" the detective says in the video.

"Like out at night time?" replied Green.

"Well a little more serious than that,” the detective said.

Little did Green know at the time, detectives had already gathered evidence against him in several other crimes, including the murder of a Broken Arrow teacher the day before, and the robbery of an older couple.

"I swear to God on my life, sir, for my freedom, I didn't do it,” Green said, his hands cuffed.

For more than 10 minutes, Green denies the crimes, until finally tearfully confessing.

"I didn't mean to kill him,” Green said. "He pushed me into the wall. I thought he had a gun, so I just shot him two times."

Green goes on to provide key details of all of his crimes, for which he's now spending life in prison without the possibility of parole.
