WATCH | On Saturday, Carnell Snell Jr. was shot and killed by Los Angeles police.
On Tuesday, LAPD released a security video captured moments before Snell was shot, showing that Snell was armed.
What the video shows
Snell appears to be holding a handgun in the video. Police said initially a handgun was found at the scene after Snell was shot, but witnesses said Snell was running from police telling them not to shoot.
Police originally started chasing Snell after he fled a traffic stop.
Police Chief Charlie Beck said he released the video to correct misinformation, not to "denigrate Mr. Snell."
There are folks that will not believe any narrative... folks that are going to find holes in whatever I present to them.
Beck acknowledged that the video would not pacify all the protesters.
Some demanded Beck's firing and call the video release character assassination.
"I don't care if he had a gun," protester Melina Abdullah said. "His life matters."
Other activists said the video was flawed since it didn't show the actual shooting of Snell.
Snell's mother made an emotional appeal to see her son's body after the shooting.
