Police Release Body Cam Footage of Deadly Officer-Involved Shooting at Walmart

The San Leandro Police Department has released bodycam footage of the deadly officer-involved shooting that occurred at Walmart last week.

The video includes the initial 911 call from a Walmart employee, as well as the body camera perspective from both officers involved in the shooting.

The incident occurred when officers responded to reports of a person brandishing a bat and a possible robbery at the Walmart at 1555 Hesperian Blvd around 3:12 p.m.

When the first officer arrived, he determined there was no robbery attempt, but the man had a bat in his hand so he tried to detain him.

Police say the man was not cooperative, so the first officer tried to taze him but was unsuccessful. After failing the second time, the officer shot the man in the chest.

The man died at the scene.

He has been identified as 33-year-old Steven Taylor.
