Delaware Police Fatally Shoot Man in Wheelchair [Video]

Warning: Video may be disturbing to some viewers.

A graphic video showing a Delaware police officer fatally shooting a Black man in a wheelchair has been released.

Wilmington Police Department officials say members of its force were dispatched to a parking lot Wednesday afternoon. The man was believed to be suffering from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, and still armed.

The man, later identified as Jeremy McDole, was seen holding a revolver-style handgun, police say. The cops also said they repeatedly ordered him to drop his weapon.

In the disturbing video, an officer can be heard yelling, “Show me your hands!” Several officers arrive at the scene and yell, "Hands up!"
