The San Diego police have released footage showing that a policeman is deadly shooting a chain-moving man as he shouts at him shouting: & # 39; Trump is the Devil & # 39;
Suspect Vaughn Denham, 48, reportedly attacked another person with a machete during a fight over a dog chain.
Agent Corey Pitts had responded to the incident on August 8, 2017. As he attempted to intervene, Denham ran to his patrol car and swung a four-foot metal chain to the vehicle.
San Diego & # 39; s prosecutor Wednesday also said the prosecutor acted in self-defense and claimed that he is not criminally responsible for the shooting.
The office released a two-minute body-camera film of the incident and found that he was not liable for any offenses.

The office claimed Pitts ordered Denham to drop the chain, and he refused while he kept walking to the officer and hurling the chain.
He used a Taser, but that couldn't prevent Denham from suing him. This forced Pitts to pull back a mile and a half, while continuing to order Denham to drop the chain and fall to the ground.
For more than a minute, Pitts stepped back and continued to give Denham commands to drop the weapon and land or be shot.
In the two-minute clip, Denham walks towards Pitts while saying: & # 39; Drop that now, drop the chain. Go downstairs. & # 39;
The man then heard him say: & # 39; Close the door & # 39 ;. Pitts told investigators that he believed that if Denham got close enough, he would hit the officer's gun out of his hand and use it against him.

He finally fired two rounds and hit him as he fell to the ground.
Denham later died in the hospital. A toxicological report showed phencyclidine (PCP), cannabinoids and methamphetamine in its system.
& # 39; Based on these circumstances, Pitts fired in Denham in his own defense, & # 39; the review of office states. & # 39; Therefore, he bears no state liability for his actions. & # 39;
California law allows officers to use lethal force to protect themselves against the threat of death or major bodily injury and to use reasonable force when arrested.
After death, the Denham family issued a statement asking police officers to meet them.
They wanted to see images of the incident so that they could & # 39; understand the full picture of what happened & # 39 ;.

The release said they wanted their questions answered and the names of the officers involved were released to the public.
Denham & # 39; s niece, Voneva Denham, told NBC: & # 39; We're here today to pay tribute to my uncle who was murdered and to request that we see the images of the policeman who shot him and also all the images they have of things that lead to his death & # 39;
Denham & # 39; s sister who lives in Texas claimed that the argument between Denham and another man started because the other man was talking about child abuse. She also said that Denham was using drugs at the time of his death.
