The video, taken by a witness to the shooting, does not appear to capture Wilson advance toward Officer Andrew Hall, as Danville police said he did before he was shot on March 11. It shows the two men facing one another, standing feet apart shortly before noon that day at Sycamore Valley Road and Camino Ramon.

In the video, Wilson can be seen clutching a bag in his left hand. For four seconds, Hall appeared to move toward Wilson, as Wilson appeared to step backward. Hall was pointing his gun at Wilson, who was facing him, then Hall shot once, the video shows. Wilson collapses on his back and Hall stands over him.

The video does not show Wilson make any sudden moves toward the officer.
