Body-worn camera footage from a traffic stop in Utah that turned deadly reveals what led to the struggle between officers and the uncooperative driver moments before he was killed.

Chase Allan, 25, was shot and killed by police in Farmington on March 1. City officials had released a statement at the time providing few details of the incident, and Allan’s family said in a statement that police had been “stonewalling” them.

“Our family was not properly notified of Chase’s death as next of kin,” the family said in their statement. “We found out about Chase’s death along with the entirety of our community via News Reporters and Articles written online.”

On Wednesday, Farmington Police Chief Eric Johnsen shared a compilation of body camera footage from the five officers involved and dash camera video from the incident at a press conference. According to the video, the officers opened fire after at least one of them yelled “Gun!” multiple times during a struggle to get Allan out of the car.
