This is the moment an armed cop shot a man in the leg during a stand-off after believing him to be carrying a rifle.
Video footage shows a female officer shooting a 31-year-old man in the leg in Worcester.
In the clip, officers yell at the man who orders him to get out of his white BMW, and as they tell him to put his hand in the air, he fails to do so.
An officer then approaches the victim, and shoots him in the leg from a few yards away.
He can be seen falling to the ground as the officer exits the frame.
Armed police were called to Ronxwood Hill at around 9 a.m. Saturday.
West Murcia police said they had received “reports of a man in his car with a rifle”.
The man was taken to hospital where his injuries were reported to be non-life threatening.
No one else was injured during the play.
The incident has been referred to our Professional Standards Department (PSD) and the Independent Office of Police Conduct (IOPC).
