Cumberland County (NJ) prosecutors have released bodycam footage of an encounter on Saturday between Vineland police and a man who claimed to be holding a bomb.
For nearly 30 minutes, police attempted to get the man to drop what he was holding.
One officer can be heard asking, "How big is that thing going to blow up then?" and "How big is that going to blow?"
But ultimately, the subject began walking toward the officers, who then opened fire, killing the man.
Witnesses said the man — identified as 27-year-old Rashaun Washington — "appeared disoriented and refused to take instructions from police," according to WPVI-TV.
The Cumberland County Prosecutor's Office said the incident is under investigation.
