“I think he's out of his mind,” the woman said. “Someone needs to come pick him up.”
The video from the dashboard of Zuniga's patrol car shows him arriving on the scene and checking the side of the house, shining his flashlight.
A short time later, Zuniga can be seen backing toward the street with his gun drawn before firing three shots with his .40-caliber Glock pistol. Scott, who was hit twice, falls forward, rolling to Zuniga's feet.
“He was holding the machete in his right hand raised above his head and he had the rifle in his left hand under his armpit with his hand on the trigger,” Clabes said. “We never want to use our firearms. But obviously, as you can see from the video, officer Zuniga had no choice.”
Scott was convicted on a felony charge of concealing stolen property in 2004 in Oklahoma County, the Oklahoma Supreme Court Network website shows.
