Officer Richard Nelson, 33, and an unnamed officer, confronted Miguel Salas, 25, on Friday after they were called about a suspicious vehicle connected to the theft of a cellphone.

They asked him to step out of his vehicle, but Salas argued that he had done nothing and would not comply.

“Why do you need me to step out of my car?” he argued. “I’m not doing nothing!”

“Yes, you are. You’re not listening to our command. Do you want to get tased?” the officer replied.

Officers held Salas’ left arm, but he used his right hand to reach for his gun and began shooting at the police.

“Shots fired! I’ve been hit! Shots fired, I’ve been hit!” Nelson yelled into his radio as he headed for cover.
