On Labor Day evening, SAPD said officers were trying to apprehend a man wanted for aggravated robbery when he may have fired at police, resulting in officers firing back and killing him.
Newly released footage of the incident shows police confronting the suspect, Jacob String, who police said refused officers' orders before saying he needed to "make a call."
An officer can be seen deploying his Taser on String as he walks away, at which point String can be seen turning and pointing what appears to be a gun at police as he falls to the ground.
Officers responded by shooting at String; at least a dozen shots can be heard. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
