On May 25, an incident occurred at Tom Brown Park that resulted in officers using deadly force. The Tallahassee Police Department has released a redacted version of the body worn camera footage from the incident.
TPD states that viewer discretion is advised.
“Our officers work every day to protect citizens in our community, and there is a lot of training that goes into that,” Police Chief Lawrence Revell said. “While this situation is one we never want to face, our officers receive regular training in areas such as officer ambush and active assailant responses. The actions of officers in this incident are a testament to their level of preparation and heroism when encountering dangerous situations that pose a threat to our community.”
At this time, the investigation remains open and active. At the conclusion of the investigation, the findings will be reviewed by the State Attorney’s Office and presented to a Grand Jury.
