VIDEO: El Cajon Police Release Footage of Controversial Fatal OIS

Videos of the fatal police shooting of a reportedly unarmed man in a San Diego suburb were released to the public Friday. The footage was captured on a surveillance camera and a bystander's cellphone.

The release comes after protesters and the family of the dead man demanded to see a bystander's full cellphone video from which a single frame had been released showing the man in what was described as a "shooting stance."

Olango, 38, was killed Tuesday by an officer who was responding to reports that a mentally unstable man was walking in traffic and behaving erratically.

Olango had not obeyed an order to remove a hand from his pants pocket and was fatally shot after he quickly drew an object from the pocket and pointed it at an officer in a "shooting stance," police said. The object was an e-cigarette device.

The bystander's video showed his hands together outstretched at chest level and aiming at an officer, Fox 10 reports.

The killing led to three nights of angry and, at times, violent protests.
