Video of Deadly El Paso Police Shooting of Bodybuilder Released

The City of El Paso released video of the 2013 shooting death of bodybuilder Daniel Saenz yesterday under orders from the Attorney General’s Office. An El Paso police officer shot and killed a handcuffed Saenz at the Downtown jail in March of 2013. According to news reports at the time, Saenz had been arrested earlier that day after allegedly attacking an off-duty police officer at Del Sol Medical Center. He had been taken there after displaying strange behavior at an Albertsons supermarket on Yarbrough.

The El Paso Times filed an open-records request in February after a grand jury decided not to indict the officer involved in the shooting, and the city repeatedly refused to turn over surveillance video citing, among other things, privacy issues. The AG rejected the city’s reasons forcing the release of the above recording.

You can read more about the events that led up to the fatal shooting, and the attorney general’s ruling on the El Paso Times website.
