In dashcam footage released today by the family of 25-year-old Lavall Hall—the mentally ill man shot and killed by Miami Gardens, Fla. police officer Eddo Trimino in February—the officer can be heard shouting, "Get on the fucking ground or you're dead!" before firing five times. As the Miami Herald reports, the shooting occurred Feb. 15, after police were called to Hall's home by his mother, who found her son standing outside nearly naked and waving a broomstick. According to CBS Miami, Hall's mother, Catherine Daniels, told officers that her son was diagnosed schizophrenic.

When police approached Hall, officers say, he became "agitated" and starting swinging the broomstick—one officer reportedly required stitches. Officers then reportedly fired Tasers at Hall, to no avail; after giving chase, Trimino caught up with Hall. When Hall apparently refused orders to lower himself to the ground, the officer fired five shots, killing Hall.
