PHOENIX – Phoenix police released body camera footage Monday from a Fourth of July officer-involved shooting.

Police were talking with a 29-year-old man in a parked car Saturday while investigating an aggravated assault case. The man rolled up his window, showed police a gun and told officers to shoot him.

One officer broke the side window of the car to distract the man and two officers fired their guns, striking the man.

The man later died at the hospital.

The investigation is still in the early stages, but the video released is from the body camera of an officer who was not involved in the shooting.

Thursday night, the Phoenix Police Department identified the officers involved in the incident to be 29-year-old Noel Trevino and 31-year-old Gregory Wilson.

The body camera footage shows what happens after the incident as the assisting officer works to safely retrieve the gun to render medical attention.

Investigators are still in the process of reviewing other body camera footage from the officers who were involved in the shooting and collecting evidence to have a full understanding of the situation.

The incident occurred at a home near 56th Avenue and Indian School Road.

The initial caller told police that a man who tried to kill him a week ago had returned with a knife and was threatening him again.

It was the 26th shooting by law enforcement in the Valley this year, the tenth involving Phoenix police, according to reports tracked by KTAR News 92.3 FM.
