Newly released body cam footage shows a Colorado Deputy shooting a driver at close-range.

According to Littleton Police, the deputy made a courtesy traffic stop to see if the driver, who was pulled over, needed assistance.

Police say that’s when the driver got out of his SUV with an assault rifle and failed to obey commands. The deputy fired his weapon shooting the suspect once in the arm.

The suspect was taken to a hospital and is now facing first-degree assault charges.
