Video shows man shot by New Jersey police raising his hands

A video shows a man stepping out of a car and raising his hands as he was fatally shot by police in New Jersey last month.

Video from a police car dashboard camera shows Bridgeton Officers Braheme Days and Roger Worley ordering two men in a Jaguar to show their hands after they were pulled over for running a stop sign on Dec. 30. Days says a gun is in the glove compartment.

Driver Leroy Tutt is seen showing his hands. It’s not clear what passenger Jerame Reid is doing, though Days warns him not to move.

Reid then steps out of the car, raising his hands. The officers fire at least six shots, killing him.

The video was first obtained through an open records request from the South Jersey Times.
