SACRAMENTO -- The Sacramento Police Department has released video and audio from the night of Sept. 5, when 19-year-old Darell Richards was killed by responding officers.
Along with 10 pieces of body camera video, two in-car camera videos, two pieces of surveillance video, three videos from a CHP airplane and three pieces of dispatch and 911 audio, the police department released a nearly 14-minute summary of the incident.
Officers responded after a 911 caller said someone in a mask had pointed a gun at him and his coworkers at Broadway and 16th Street. The caller said the man didn't say anything and continued east down Broadway.

In two videos (a body-worn camera and an in-car camera), and officer spots Richards and orders him to stop. Richards then runs away.
After setting up a perimeter in the Curtis Park area, SWAT officers found Richards hiding in the backyard of a home near 20th Street and 1st Avenue.
Police say Richards pointed a gun at officers, and police opened fire at 3:12 a.m. The videos do not offer a clear look at Richards or what he was holding. Investigators later said Richards was armed with a BB gun that closely resembled an actual handgun.
Officers started to give Richards medical aid at 3:24 a.m.
After the shooting, activists said Richards should have been taken into custody.
"There’s times where you see law enforcement detain somebody who just shot up a church or a movie theater and they’re detained without a scratch and here we have an 18, 19-year-old boy who they had to kill," Black Lives Matter Sacramento founder Tanya Faison told FOX40 on Sept. 7.
Two officers have been placed on paid administrative leave.
