[Caution – Graphic Images] Body camera footage from a fatal officer-involved shooting in December inside a west Tulsa QuikTrip has been released by the Tulsa Police Department.
About 2:20 AM December 18, officers responded to the QuikTrip at 1202 W. 23rd Street after a 911 caller told dispatch a man had pointed a gun at a security guard.
Footage shows officers arriving on the scene finding a QuikTrip employee outside and an armed security guard holding a man, later identified as Tyler Hall, 29, at gunpoint in the store’s eastern side. Hall can be seen in body camera footage with a handgun in his right hand held at his waist.
More officers move into the building for about the next 5 minutes before Lieutenant Larry Edwards, Officer Brian Hill and Officer Jennifer Lingor opened fire and struck Hall an unknown number of times.
The initial responding officer, who was not identified in a news release about the video and did not fire his weapon, repeatedly pleads with Hall to get on the ground and drop the gun. Hall responded to the officer, saying “Pop me” in response to the officer’s commands… Tulsa World
