Police Activity Presented on US Sports Net Presented by Tactical P.E. Featuring: Bodycam Shows Tulsa Police Officers Shooting Suspect Armed With Gun

** (Disclaimer: This video content is intended for educational and informational purposes only) ** The Tulsa Police Department on Friday released body camera video of a deadly officer-involved shooting that took place in October. Officers D. Jones, C. Riley and J. McRee were involved in the shooting of Luis Arreguin-Lara.

They've all been returned to full duty since the shooting. The shooting happened just before 2:30 p.m. Oct. 27 near East Pine Street and North Harvard Avenue. Officers saw a vehicle pulled over with its hazard lights on, so they stopped to see if they could help. "She said she was experiencing problems with her wheels, a lug nut had fallen off. She said her ex-boyfriend had gone to get something to fix it, and he was on his way back," said Sgt. Shane Tuell with the Tulsa Police Department. Police say 50-year-old Arreguin-Lara was riding a bike back to his ex-girlfriend with a tire iron when they approached him.

 When police asked him to put the tire iron down, they say he pulled a gun from his side. "He turned his right hip sideways to get his hip away from the officers and began digging at his hip, and that was a key indicator to the officers he may have a weapon, and sure enough, he did," said Tuell. Initially, police said Arreguin-Lara had fired the first shot before three officers shot back. "But ultimately, when you produce a firearm in the manner that he did, it was very threatening. They felt like, at the very minimum, their lives were in danger and [they] had to make that quick decision," said Tuell. Arreguin-Lara had a felony warrant out for his arrest, and police say the ex-girlfriend did mention it to them, but they didn't get the opportunity to confirm it before police say he pulled the gun out.
