PASCO — Pasco police released a video with body camera footage of a police shooting on May 17 that left one suspect dead and another injured.

The Special Investigations Unit (SIU) continues investigating the shooting.

Chief Ken Roske and our Public Information Officer (PIO), Sgt. Rigo Pruneda created a video presentation to inform the public about the May shooting. It was released on Aug. 3.

"The presentation incorporates video from our officers' body-worn cameras (BWC's) and includes deadly force (shooting) and mild language; parents should use discretion around children," according to police.
