NYPD releases bodycam footage showing fatal police shooting of Bronx man wielding fake gun

The NYPD on Thursday released body camera footage showing the confrontation earlier this month that led to police fatally shooting a Bronx man. A 16-minute video compilation of footage from four officers’ body cameras screened for reporters showed cops repeatedly telling Miguel Richards, 31, to drop the knife he was holding in his Edenwald apartment on Sept. 6. At one point Officer Mark Fleming tells Richards, “Put that knife on the floor or this isn’t going to end well for you. Put that knife on the floor.” At another point he tells Richards, “Drop your weapon. You’re about a second from getting shot.”
