TPD releases video of fatal officer-involved shooting

Posted: Updated:

Tucson Police have released a nearly 12-minute video that shows a deadly encounter with a suspect last week. 

Daniel Spear, 35, was killed by officers on Oct. 18 near North Pantano and East Wrightstown roads at about 10 p.m. He had recently been released from prison after serving five years for armed robbery.

The footage is from officer body cams and nearby surveillance cameras. Police have more than 15 hours of footage.

Investigators say Spear and another suspect tried to steal a truck at gunpoint. The victim told police the men assaulted him. 

Police say the two men fired shots at the victim, but he was not injured.

As police were responding, the suspects ran away. Officers chased one suspect and during the chase, he fired shots at them. The officers then fired back, killing him, police said.

A second man was arrested but later released.
