Washington D.C.’s Metropolitan Police Department released body cam video of an officer fatally shooting 18-year-old Deon Kay on Sept. 2.

Police Chief Peter Newsham said that officers were responding to a report of a man with a gun whom cops saw on a live-streamed video, reports WJLA.

When police officers arrived, two suspects ran, and officers ran after them.

One officer tries to cut off Kay who appears be carrying a small object, which was allegedly a gun. The officer shoots Kay, but the object is gone before Kay hits the pavement.

The police body cam shows the officer desperately searching before finding a gun 98 feet (32 yards) away.
