"Footage taken from the bodycam of Palestine Police Sgt. Gabriel Green during the shooting of James Bushey on May 31, 2015. This footage may be disturbing for some viewers. Discretion is advised."
In the video, you see the suspect draw a gun, flee, then turn toward the police, gun in hand.
Later, it was determined that it was a realistic looking BB gun. No one will ever know for certain why the suspect, 47 year old James D. Bushey, decided to draw the gun, then run, then turn toward the police. As he was accused of stealing beer, perhaps he was drunk.
His brother said that he was "trying to turn his life around".
