Jerame Reid was fatally shot in Bridgeton, New Jersey, on Dec. 30, 2014, by police officers during a routine traffic stop.

Officers Braheme Days and Roger Worley both fired their guns at Reid who died on the scene, noted NJ.com at the time.

However, witness Denzel Mosley told the Associated Press that Reid's hands were in full view, but a gun was not.

“They were telling him, ‘Get out the car,'” stated Mosley. “They [police] was like ‘Stop!’ and they started shooting.”

Now, a dashcam police video (below) of the shooting has been released.

According to PressOfAtlanticCity.com, when the right car door opens, Reid appears to have his hands up at chest level in an effort to surrender. Both officers then shoot at him.

Moments later, the driver, Leroy Tutt, gets out of the car and lays on the ground.

“You see that there was no threat to the officer, and no weapons in the victim’s hands,” Conrad Benedetto, the Reid family's lawyer, said on Tuesday.
