The Oklahoma City Police Department (OKCPD) has released footage of an officer-involved shooting from May 5.

Just before 8 pm, officers responded to a domestic disturbance at a home on 7400 NW 106th Street. According to OKCPD, the man physically assaulted a female.

In the video, you can see a man with a gun and hear him yelling at someone and shooting the gun in the air before the arrival of a law enforcement official.

The first officer made it to the scene and made contact with the male. He was identified as Kenneth Allsen.

OKCPD said the officer gave Allsen several verbal commands, but he did not comply.

As the second officer arrived on the scene, Allsen walked away from officers while he talked on the phone.

Officials said Allsen was facing away from the officers before he turned and looked back toward them, and he drew a handgun from his waistline. As a result, an officer discharged his firearm, striking and killing Allsen.

Allsen was pronounced dead on the scene.

While Allsen was lying on the ground dead, officers discovered another gun in his back pocket.

According to OKCPD, no one else was injured during this incident.
