Newly released footage revealed the moment a four-year-old boy shot at cops as they were arresting the boy’s father in Utah, United States.
The video, which was recorded on a cop’s bodycam, showed the officers attempting to forcibly remove the father, 27, from his car after the police had received a 911 call that said a man had “brandished” a gun at drive-thru staff at a restaurant in suburban Salt Lake City, reported the New York Post.
A three-year-old girl and a four-year-old boy were sitting inside the car when a single shot rang out and one of the officers could be seen asking for the gun to be dropped.
A child can be heard crying before a female officer asks “Are you alright, kid? It’s okay,” and eases them out of the car.
The incident occurred in February, but the footage has only just been released now.
