Homeless Man Turns His Back On 3 Cops And The Shoot And Kill Him Claiming He Was Threat.

GRAPHIC VIDEO OF SHOOTING BELOW NOT RECOMMENDED FOR ALL

 

 

"Don't change up the agreement, I'm going to try to walk with you," Boyd says in the video. The suspect then picks up his belongings as if ready to leave. As he starts to head down the hill, an officer can be heard saying "Do it," before Boyd is hit with a flash-bang device.

Visibly disoriented, Boyd drops his bags and appears to take out a knife. That's when two officers, Dominque Perez and Keith Sandy, fire multiple rounds into the man.

Boyd can be seen dropping to the ground, where he lays still. Officers yell at him to drop his knife repeatedly. When the suspect doesn't answer, police fire multiple bean-bag rounds at the man, then release a K-9 officer on him.

Blood can be seen splattered on rocks near Boyd's head. The man was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead a day later.

Officer Sandy, who was involved in the shooting, was fired from the New Mexico State Police in 2007 over accusations of fraud. He was allegedly making money doing private security work while also on the force, KRQE reported.

When Sandy joined the APD, the department said he would be a civilian employee and wouldn't have a gun or badge. Sandy continued rising through the ranks, eventually joining the Repeat Offender Project Team.

Boyd, who police said may have been a paranoid schizophrenic, has a long criminal history. In the past, he allegedly attacked people with knives, box cutters, and his hands, and in 2010 broke a female officer's nose, according to KOAT.

During a news conference, Chief Eden said the shooting was justified because Boyd was a "direct threat" to the three gun-wielding officers. Eden reportedly left the press conference before news stations could ask why officers didn't use stun guns instead of firing their weapons.

Grassroots organization ProgressNow, which focuses on advocacy issues on state and local levels, has condemned the shooting.
