Judge grants release of video in North Carolina shooting

Posted July 10

— A woman can be heard screaming "Please don't shoot him!" on a video recorded as a police officer wearing a body camera fatally shot a North Carolina man.

Two body camera videos of Iaroslav Mosiiuk's shooting were released Monday on a judge's order.

District Attorney R. Andrew Murray said last week that Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Officer Brian Walsh was justified in killing Mosiiuk, a mentally ill man who was pointing a loaded rifle that lacked a critical piece and didn't work.

Murray said in a 175-page report that Walsh killed Mosiiuk with a shot to the back. He said Walsh couldn't have known the rifle was missing a critical piece when he acted.

Walsh was also heard telling his wife on the phone he had just been forced to shoot someone.
