The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department released edited body camera footage Tuesday from a December incident in which officers shot a man inside his car in his grandmother’s driveway.

Anthony Maclin was asleep in a rental car with Florida license plates. His grandmother, Vicki Driver, called 911 because she did not recognize the vehicle.

The footage shows IMPD officers approach the car and identify a gun in Maclin’s lap, which is not immediately visible on camera. They attempt to open the car’s doors and shine flashlights into the windows. Three minutes after their arrival, officers began to knock on the windows to wake Maclin. The IMPD narrative then claims Maclin moved his arm toward the passenger seat, followed by about six seconds of steady gunfire from the officers.

Maclin filed a tort claim earlier this week, which also demands the entirety of the body camera footage be released and that the officers involved be fired and charged.

This story will be updated.
