Body cam footage: Freddy Centeno shot by Fresno Police

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Freddy Centeno's family released police body camera footage of Centeno being shot by Fresno Police on September 3, 2015. Centeno was shot 7 times in the incident and died several weeks later on September 26th.

Centeno's family is suing the Fresno Police Department over the shooting saying Centeno, who is mentally ill, was unarmed when police started shooting him "commando style."

Attorney for the family, Humberto Guizar, said: "The death of an unarmed mentally ill man without provocation is a tragic event as Mr. Centeno leaves behind a young child and loving parents."
