Tuolumne County Sheriff officials have released the body-cam video from the deputy-involved shooting that happened in Groveland.

The suspect, 42-year-old Shawn Karr of Coulterville, was pronounced dead at the scene. The deputy involved in the shooting was identified only by his last name, Zanini, in the video. As earlier reported here, on Tuesday, February 27, a white pickup truck was pulled over for several vehicle violations while patrolling along Merrell Road near Harper Road.

The driver was found to have a vile with white powder residue on him, suspected of being methamphetamine. Karr was the passenger, and the video shows that after arguing with Deputy Zanini, Karr ran but was tackled to the ground.

Deputy Zanini reports seeing a gun in Karr’s hand while they struggled, and that is when two shots can be heard. Two loaded guns were recovered, one on the ground within reach of Karr and the other in his left pocket.
