Bodycam video shows officers shoot man who threatened them with a shovel

*Action starts at 7:37 mark

APD officer Edgar Sandoval fatally shot Valente Acosta-Bustillos, 52, during a welfare check in the man's home. Police say they realized Acosta-Bustillos had a warrant and tried to arrest him and he threatened them with a shovel.

One of his family members had called 911, saying they had not seen Acosta-Bustillo in several days, and he failed to pick up his paycheck.

When officers arrived, they found Acosta-Bustillo in his yard with a shovel in his hand.

Valente was found to have one confirmed felony warrant for felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon-- at that point the call changed from a welfare check to felony arrest which officers were obligated to enforce

Bodycam video shows Acosta-Bustillo going back into his house and refusing to comply with officers. After he refused to drop the shovel, he was tased.

The video shows Acosta-Bustillo then lift the shovel over his head, in what appears to be a threatening manner, before he was shot.

He eventually died at the hospital.
