The Tucson Police Department held a press conference Monday afternoon regarding the officer-involved shooting that occurred on March 16. Police released officer body camera video from the shooting incident.

Carlos Alegria, 41, was shot March 15 after pulling a gun on officers, according to the TPD. Sgt. Pete Dugan, spokesman for the TPD, said police received a call about a man, later identified as Alegria, with a knife who was being aggressive to workers in the neighborhood.

Dugan said Alegria pulled a gun, which was later determined to be a BB gun, on officers when they arrived on the scene. Officers Mark Molina, a 19-year veteran, and Gary Rosebeck, an 8-year veteran, both discharged their firearms during the incident. Alegria was treated at a local hospital and later booked into the Pima County Jail. He is facing three counts of aggravated assault and five counts of disorderly conduct.
