Police car dashcam video released in court Wednesday shows the police shooting of former Florida A&M University football player Jonathan Ferrell.

The video from Officer Adam Neal’s cruiser shows two patrol cars approaching an already parked third unit. Ferrell is seen walking towards the cars, approaching the officers before running between and past the cars, and the view of the dashcam.

“Get on the ground” is yelled several times before multiple gun shots erupt, followed by an officer saying, “shots fired, shots fired!” and another yelling, “don’t move, don’t move!”

Before those fateful moments, Ferrell had been in a car accident and staggered to a nearby house for help — but a woman inside called 911 to report an attempted break-in.
