Sacramento Police Release Videos From Fatal Shooting Of Homicide Suspect

The Sacramento Police Department has released some of the videos from a fatal police shooting on 27th Avenue earlier this month.

Several cameras recorded the officer telling Eric Arnold to keep his hands in the air as he sat inside a pickup truck.

"Driver," the officer yells, "shut off the engine keep your hands up! Drop the keys out the window! Put your hands up where I can see them. Get your hands up!"

At that point, Arnold gets out of the truck and begins firing as he walks towards officers.

Officers Timothy Martin and Victor Wolfe were hit during the shootout but are recovering.

Arnold was hit 14 times and died at the scene.

Police say Arnold was wanted for the murder of his girlfriend and her daughter on Janrick Avenue in south Sacramento on Sept. 1 of this year.
