Flagstaff Police have released body cam video, along with the 911 call and other media regarding Friday night’s fatal shooting of a man who wouldn’t stop waiving a gun at officers. The incident took place at around 8:52 p.m. in the 700 block of West Coconino Avenue. That’s where officers confronted 78-year-old John Hamilton with a firearm. On the video, officers repeatedly demanded Hamilton drop the weapon and stop waiving it around or pointing it at anyone. After several minutes of officers giving commands, and the suspect failing to comply, officers shot Hamilton. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The officers involved were suspended with pay during the investigation.
