Watch: Body cam video released of LoDo police shooting that injured six bystanders

The Denver Post: Denver police on Tuesday released body camera footage of three officers shooting an armed man and injuring six innocent bystanders outside busy downtown bars.

The July 17 police shooting sparked outrage across the city and pledges from the department to provide a thorough, transparent investigation into its officers’ actions. Denver police officials previously made public still images they selected from the videos but denied a public records request by The Denver Post and other news outlets to release the videos in their entirety.

Three Denver police officers started following Jordan Waddy because they believed he had a gun after they saw him lift up his shirt and grab at his waistband during an argument near the intersection of 20th and Larimer streets as bars closed for the night. When confronted by police, Waddy pulled a handgun from his clothing and was holding it by the slide on the top of the gun when the officers fired, police said. The officers injured Waddy as well as the six bystanders in the immediate vicinity.
