Video from police, public being examined in fatal Pasco police shooting of man

KENNEWICK, Wash. (AP) — Investigators are asking the public to provide more social media images and witness accounts of a fatal police shooting that has sparked a series of protests in Pasco.

They also asked for patience as they seek more information about the victim, an unarmed Mexican man who ran from officers after reportedly throwing rocks at them.

At a news conference Thursday, the spokesman for the regional special investigations unit probing the shooting said video from patrol cars and witnesses is being examined.

Sgt. Ken Lattin of the nearby Kennewick Police Department said videos continue to arrive, and he asked for more contributions from people who saw the Feb. 10 shooting at a busy Pasco intersection.

Authorities also are seeking more people who saw 35-year-old Antonio Zambrano-Montes in the weeks before the shooting, so they can learn more about his frame of mind.

Pasco police say Zambrano-Montes was shot after he threw rocks at officers and refused to put down other stones.

Multiple videos of the shooting have popped up online. Q13 FOX News has not linked to the video because it is extremely graphic. But here is a link to the video if you wish to view it.
