VIDEO: Arizona Officer's Body Cam Captures Lead-up to Fatal Shooting

Video captured from the video camera worn by Flagstaff police Officer Tyler Jacob Stewart shows the conversation between the rookie officer and shooting suspect Robert William Smith before it turned into a deadly confrontation, reports the Arizona Republic.

The camera stops in the instant before Smith reportedly shot and killed Stewart outside a Flagstaff home on Dec. 27.

Stewart, 24, was a rookie with less than one year experience with Flagstaff police when he was killed Dec. 27. Investigators used footage from Stewart's body camera to piece together what happened at about 1:30 p.m. in an alley near Clay Avenue and Globe Street, not far from Northern Arizona University in one of Flagstaff's oldest neighborhoods.

God rest this young officers soul. To hell with the shooter, damn his soul!

wonder where his back up was, or was he even getting one? Maybe this is another reason why there should be 2 cops in any car. People (some) will not even attempt an assault on police if outnumbered, unless they are nuts anyway.
