Authorities have released video from the fatal shooting of a sword-carrying man in Pima County on Saturday, Feb. 24.

The Pima County Regional Incident Team released the video on Friday, March 29. The video, which contains graphic content, can be viewed below.

The PCRIT earlier said 23-year-old Devon Lewis died at the scene, a hotel in the 4800 block of South Palo Verde Road.

PRCIT said someone called 911 to report Lewis was yelling and waving a sword around in the parking lot.

When Pima County Sheriff’s Department deputies arrived, they found Lewis standing outside with his sword sheathed.

PRCIT said, following a shot conversation between deputies and Lewis, he removed the sword from the sheath and started charging deputies.

A deputy then shot Lewis, and other deputies began rendering aid.

There were no other injuries reported in the incident.
