The North Las Vegas Police Department released body camera video capturing the moments officers opened fire on a suspect involved in a triple-homicide.

An officer-involved shooting last week led officers to locate three women and a dog dead.

The suspect was identified as 43-year-old Edward Brooks.

The Clark County Coroner's Office identified the three women as 52-year-old Africa Woods, 48-year-old Venus Hart, and 42-year-old Tiffany Mawhorter.

Police said Brooks was living in one of the apartments, but was not in a relationship with any of the women who died.

Body camera footage from one of the officer's angles shows him approaching Brooks before firing at him.

North Las Vegas Police said they arrived at a complex near Carey and Las Vegas Boulevard just after 3 Tuesday afternoon after someone called 9-1-1 after hearing gunshots.

Police also released those 9-1-1 calls Monday from a resident at the complex who called after fleeing from the scene.

As officers approached the courtyard, they said they saw a man with a firearm walking towards them. That man was identified as Brooks.

That's when police said they told Brooks to drop the gun, and he continued to come towards them.

Police said two officers fired at Brooks, who died from his injuries.

Police started searching the apartments and found three women and a dog dead in two separate apartments.

A young child was also found safe in one of the apartments.

Brooks' extensive criminal history provided by NLVPD is below:

Brooks' criminal history is extensive and goes back to 1996.

North Las Vegas Police said it included charges of robbery, murder, and rape.

According to police, Brooks had multiple parole violations throughout the years.

Had Brooks not died from the officer-involved shooting, police said his charges would have included three counts of open murder, ex-felon in possession of a firearm, and burglary with a deadly weapon.
