SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 News)- The Salt Lake City Police Dept. released bodycam footage of a deadly officer-involved shooting.

Officers shot and killed the suspect, 22-year-old Bernardo Palacios-Carbajal, around 2 a.m. on May 23rd near 900 South and 300 West.

At the time police said Palaciso-Carbajal had a gun when a confrontation with officers occurred.

A timeline and explanation of events from that morning was released during a press conference Friday at 2 p.m.

Palacios’ family is calling for justice. “Those officers need to be put away for the rest of their lives because they took our baby brother,” his sister Elsa said.

After this press conference, Salt Lake City Mayor Erin Mendenhall apologized to Palacios-Carbajal’s family, saying the footage is “genuinely disturbing and upsetting.”
