Seattle police released a horrific video of the officer-involved shooting that happened early Thursday morning. Officers shot and killed a man suspected of killing a woman after the suspect grabbed a knife and began flashing it at officers, according to the video.
The incident happened around 4 a.m. Thursday when officers were called to an apartment building near North 105th Street and Midvale Avenue North. In the video, officers can be seen breaking down a door to bedroom as a man moves around in the room.
When police enter, they find a woman who had been decapitated. The shocked officers then begin ordering the murder suspect to get down on the ground. There's a knife nearby on the floor of the room.
After a few minutes, the suspect - who the officers cannot talk to due to a Spanish language barrier - gets up and begins walking around the apartment. He keeps his hands in the air at some points, but then suddenly grabs the knife from the floor and moves behind a wall out of sight of the officers' bodycams.
The suspect comes back into view and begins moving slowly toward the officers, who are in uniform, shouting for him to get down, and aiming guns at him. The two officers open fire when the man fails to get down and continues moving toward them.
