Video of cop shooting Arizona man contradicts police report


An Arizona police department is under fire as newly released footage of police shooting a man runs counter to the official story.

Manuel Orosco Longoria led police from the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office on a 40-minute chase in a stolen car, before he was pulled over.

Once out of the car, police said Longoria refused to cooperate, then reached into the trunk of the car, at which point officers shot him twice.

However, the video shows that Longoria had both hands raised above his head when he was shot.
