[WATCH] Huntington Beach Police Officer Struggles With Suspect Before Fatal Shooting

The bystander said he lost sight of the pair momentarily, then saw the officer standing over the man. That’s when he began recording the episode.

Heal said that in a fight, an officer isn’t always aware of what a suspect might snatch from their belt, and that might have escalated the situation. “He could have thought the man grabbed his Taser. That is weapon that can disable an officer.”
