Arizona police released body camera footage of a Navajo woman approaching an officer with scissors before he shot her five times and killed her in March.

Loreal Tsingine, 27, can be seen in the video moving toward Winslow Officer Austin Shipley, who said to another officer after the shooting, "I did what I had to do."

The video was made public by the city of Winslow on Wednesday, and obtained by 12 News, just days after the Maricopa County Attorney's Office said that Officer Shipley was justified in the shooting.

The officer was responding to a report of a possible shoplifting on March 27 in Winslow when he fatally shot Tsingine on a sidewalk.



There was two cops there. They could have possibly dis-armed her with the scissors....or was the shooting justified?

I saw this month's ago. Do I think he had to shoot her? Not at the point he did. It's not even clear she was coming towards him. Looks to me like she would have walked past him.

Dis they need to stop her? Yes. Should they have tried something like a Taser first? I would think so.

The woman was thrown to the ground. She got back up and continue walking towards the officer with the scissor in her hand. The shooting was justified.

Another example of our BRAVE police who risk their lives daily against middle aged omen running with scissors, men laying on their back with their hands up, people reaching for their wallets. Obviously only the bravest hearts become officers.

Guess she should've put the scissors down.

She was very close to the officer, moving towards him in aggressive manner, armed with a potentially deadly weapon and threatening deadly physical force. We don't know whether he had a Taser, but even if he did, the shooting was legally and morally justified.

She isn't black. How is this newsworthy?
