The July 1 standoff between Hall and the officers, as well as the fatal shots, was captured on cellphone video. In the video, which was purchased by CNN and exclusively aired on their network, Hall is seen arguing with police officers. At one point, the man who captured the scenes, says Hall crouched in a “Karate stance.”

CNN has more on how the rest of the scene plays out:

Police said Hall had just had a run-in with a convenience store clerk. On the video, he tells police, “My name is Milton Hall, I just called 911. My name is Milton, and I’m p—ed off.” When an officer tells him to put the knife down, he responds, “I ain’t putting s–t down.” He appears unimpressed by a police dog, telling officers, “Let him go. Let the motherf—ing dog go.”

When Hall turned to the left of the frame where an officer had moved out of view, he was then shot at least 30-plus times, according to CNN. Local news outlets report as many as 46 shots were fired.

What can a man that is 50 years old and mentally disabled do ? He can't harm anyone. The police went overboard and they didn't have to shoot and kill him 46 times. We want justice and we want this hatred to stop between White policers and Black men. WE ARE TIRED. Stop killing our Black men.
