According to sources familiar with the case, Salamoni pointed his gun at Sterling's head and told him he would "blow his f**king head off" if he did not put his hands on a nearby auto.

Baton Rouge Police Chief Murphy Paul Jr. seemed at times during a Friday afternoon press conference to chide officers who react to calls with an overstated amount of fear and he pleaded with the public to listen and follow directives from officers when you encounter them.

As Sterling asks exactly what he has actually done, the circumstance breaks down.

Officers recovered a loaded revolver from Sterling's pocket.

Sterling was shot by Salamoni six times during the fatal confrontation. "Put your f-- hands on the auto". Moments later, one of the officers shot and killed Sterling, a black man who had been selling CDs outside the store, while he was on the ground.

Trying to explain why he swore at Sterling after the shooting, Salamoni said "he was so mad at Sterling for making him kill him and for trying to kill us", the report says.

Salamoni defended his use of profanities, according to the report, stating he believed that if he started cursing at Sterling he "would realize that the police are here and we are not playing".

The officers had responded to a call that a man fitting Sterling's description had been seen brandishing a gun at the convenience store.

The video shows Salamoni's gun very close to the right side of Sterling's head as Sterling protests that someone is hurting his arm. Baton Rouge Mayor Sharon Weston Broome has said that the city will launch its own investigation into the shooting, as well.

Paul said he spent a great deal of time on the decision to discipline the officers. "The person who was out of control was Blane Salamoni".

Sterling's death, and the decision not to prosecute the officers, has fueled African-Americans' frustration with a legal system that fails to convict officers.

"He did what he was trained to do, " McLindon said of his client.

State and federal prosecutors reviewed the recordings before ruling out charges against both officers, but they declined to release the footage even after announcing they had insufficient evidence to bring a criminal case.

Both Salamoni, who'd been with the department for four years before the shooting, and Lake, who'd been employed there for three, were placed on paid administrative leave after the incident.

Friday night, the attorneys also pushed for a deeper, cultural fix, saying the relationship between officers and community members must improve.

The release of the footage and the disciplinary actions against both officers come nearly two years after Sterling, a father of five, was killed outside of the store. "We heard those officers threat Mr".

Warning: The videos below are graphic and disturbing to watch. Williams told her attorney, Michael Adams, that she had an anxiety attack and collapsed when she saw one of the newly released videos in a friend's social media post as she walking in her neighborhood Friday evening.

"His actions were egregious", Adams said, adding that Lake should have assisted Sterling.
