VIDEO: Kansas Dollar Store Robbery Shooting

The Wichita (Kan.) Police Department has released surveillance video, 911 tapes, and photographs from an October robbery of a Dollar store showing a fatal officer-involved shooting of a man with a knife.

The release of the material comes on the heels of the Sedgwick County District Attorney's Office ruling Friday that officers were justified in using deadly force to subdue 28-year-old DeJuan Colbert, reports the Wichita Eagle.

The incident began the evening of Oct. 30 when the manager of Dollar General recieved a call asking what time the store closed. A few minutes before closing, the manager locked one of the two glass entry doors.

The video shows responding officers entering the store as Colbert charges them with a knife, which came within inched of the first officer. The three officers fired at least 32 shots, striking Colbert with 15 rounds.
