Video: N.M. Cop's On-Body Cam Captures Deadly Force

VIDEO: On-Body Cam Captures N.M. Police Shooting

An Albuquerque (N.M.) Police officer's on-body lapel video camera captured an enraged, knife-wielding suspect who shook off two TASER shots before forcing the officer to use deadly force.

Officer Damian Lujan fired seven or eight shots at 33-year-old Orlando Paisano at an apartment complex in June. Paisano's girlfriend had called police to report that Paisano was beating her and her family members.

Officer Lujan and Officer Jung confronted the suspect, who had a long dagger-like knife. When Paisano refused to drop the knife, Officer Jung hit the suspect with a TASER round. Paisano again refused to drop the knife and Officer Jung used another TASER round on him. Officer Lujan then shoots Paisano who falls to the ground and drops the knife.

In a KOB news report, Paisano's brother Francis Paisano has said officers should have done more to protect his enraged brother, and should have shot him in the leg.

The lapel camera, which is manufactured by Scorpion, records audio and video. The device backs up its data on an 8GB mini-SD card and operates with an on-board battery lasting up to eight hours on stand-by and three hours while actively recording, Albuquerque PD's Officer Robert Gibbs tells POLICE Magazine.

They are attached to the front of the uniform shift by a cloth holder specifically developed for the device.

"There is a small button on top to engage the recorder," Gibbs tells POLICE. "You simply transfer what you'd like onto a DVD and tag it into evidence."
