New York officials have released police body camera video as part of the investigation into the deadly police shooting of Win Rozario.
Rozario, 19, died on March 27 following an encounter with the NYPD in Queens.

Police responded to a 911 call at 103rd Street and 101st Avenue and came across Rozario holding a pair of scissors.

Two officers fired their guns at Rozario. He was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

A man wielding scissors was shot and killed by police in the Ozone Park section of Queens on Wednesday afternoon.

Officers were responding to a home on 103rd Street after a mother called about her 19-year-old son acting erratically.

When officers arrived, they were confronted by the man who was wielding scissors.

NYPD officials say the officers attempted to take the man into custody and get him help, but instead, he pulled a pair of scissors out of a drawer and charged at the officers.

The officers initially fired their tasers at the man, in the living room kitchen of his second-floor home, but as his mother rushed to his aid, officials say "she accidentally knocked the tasers out of his body," rendering them ineffective.

The suspect then picked up the scissors and came at the officers again, forcing them to open fire.

"It was chaotic, fast moving, and they had to defend themselves," NYPD Chief of Patrol John Chell said.
