A 48-second video recorded on a bystander’s cell phone shows the fatal shooting of a 37-year-old man by police in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. You can watch the video above.

Alton Sterling was shot and killed about 12:35 a.m. Tuesday, The Advocate reports.

A zoomed-in version of the incident was posted to Twitter:

A second video, which taken from another angle, recorded by convenience store owner Abdullah Muflahi, can be seen below (Warning – Graphic):

Sterling was selling CDs outside the Triple S Food Mart, at the corner of Fairfields Avenue and North Foster Drive, WAFB-TV reports.

Officers had responded to a disturbance call in which the caller said someone had been threatening him with a gun, police told the news station.

Baton Rouge Police have released few details about the shooting, including whether Sterling was armed. A witness, the store’s owner, Abdullah Muflahi, told the Advocate Sterling was armed, but was not holding his gun or touching his pockets during the incident, the Advocate reports. The gun was later found in his pocket, Muflahi told the newspaper.

The brief video shows the end of the incident. An officer can be heard yelling “get on the ground,” out of the view of the cell phone camera. As the camera pans up, an officer is seen charging at Sterling, grabbing him and tackling him into the hood of a car and then down to the pavement.

Another officer can then be seen kneeling on Alton Sterling. After a few seconds one of the officers yells, “He’s got a gun!” The officer seen in the video kneeling on Sterling draws his weapon and one of them says, “if you f*cking move, I swear to God!”

One of the officers then says, something, which can be heard more clearly in the second video as “he’s going for the gun!”

Two shots can then be heard and the bystander drops the cell phone. Three more shots are then fired after a brief pause.

I like how the article conveniently leaves out the last thing said before the shooting:

Cop: “Mike–he’s going for the taser…”

Black KKK

kick these mutant albinos out of america and send these flea riden dog stinking neadrethals back to the caucus mountains where they come from!!!!!

Hey blackie kkk,, too bad we can’t bring back slavery and put you negroes back into the filth that you look like.

MericaTheScared

Sad. This is how you humans act like neanderthals.

sweeta0920

Am sure you look like shit. Even with our blackness we still look and smell better than you! Plus we age better! We are conquerors. That’s why you guys fear negroes. If situation was reversed, you guys would still be enslaved.

You’re all idiots. You know what the difference is between the races? Melanin in the skin.

Grow up, all of you. You’re all a disgrace to this country and to humanity as a whole.

Yea you guys conquered a lot! I wish you guys would have not been sold by your ancestors. You could still be in your home country and being taken care of much better by the Govt.. Remember, I would not have been shot because when the police would have gotten there, I would have went straight on the ground with hands up. Police don’t know who or what you are or what is going on when they arrive. I know you would have waited till the guy would have pulled out his gun and aimed it at you before you would have pulled yours out and fired, but I don’t think those guys were that fast. What do you think would have happened if the police would have decided not even to show up? Or if your child would have been their and got shot by the guy before the police decided to take him down. Police don’t have crystal balls like you have anymore. Maybe u should go and just try out being a cop for a while. I’m not defending or downplaying anyone. I’m just trying to make you think. What happened before the police arrived? Do you know? I don’t either. But God knows what happed! And remember, God made all of us. And everyone that came over to the USA from beginning to now, Were given a blessing from God. If you think that an African Govt. would be paying you bills you are badly mistaken. I worked there!
STOP! God made all of us. However you were made was Gods decision and you must be proud and take what God gives you in an open and free country. You can do anything you want in this country. Unfortunatly some people are living in a bubble and don’t see or don’t want to see what God gave them. Its almost as crazy as people making a religion but doing it completely different that the bible says how to do it. Some religion completely goes completely around the savior and would love to see a high ranking member of a religion more than Jesus. It don’t make sense! Come on people. God loves you and everyone else! I don’t like our president, But since he was voted into presidency, He became my president. So reguardless of if I like him or not, I pray for him every night.
Does it seem like I’m going to far off the mark? No I’m not……..and God knows everything that happened in Baton Rouge and every other place. Talk to him about it and open your eyes to reality, reguardless of how good or bad it is, it can be prevented. Think of what you would have done when the cops got there, What would you teach your family to do in a situation like that, and that will show you who you really are, and what you really are. God sees your heart!!!

God bless you all.
