AN UNARMED MAN WAS SHOT & KILLED BY A POLICE OFFICER IN ARIZONA AS HE BEGGED FOR HIS LIFE, ACCORDING TO NEWLY RELEASED REPORTS

Daniel Shaver of Texas was killed in January after police came to his hotel room responding to reports of a man pointing a rifle out a window.

"Please don't shoot me," Shaver cried before Officer Philip Brailsford shot him five times.

Mr. Brailsford was charged with second-degree murder. He was also fired from his job at the Mesa, Arizona Police Department.

The prosecutor said that Mr. Brailsford was "manifesting an extreme indifference to human life recklessly causing the death of another."

Brailsford said he thought Shaver was reaching for a weapon in his waistband when he was shot, according to the police report.

Authorities released police reports, emergency service recordings and other information this week.

Video and audio recordings from a police body camera exist, but were not released.

Shaver, a 26-year-old father of two, was in Mesa on business.
