DELAND, Fla. (AP) — Video released by a Florida sheriff's office shows a robbery suspect swinging his arms in the seconds before he is fatally shot by three deputies.

The video released Tuesday of the Volusia County deputies shooting Donald Brown was taken by a person parked behind where deputies had pulled over Brown's car.

Deputies made the stop based on a suspicion that Brown had committed a robbery at gunpoint Sunday.

The video shows driver Erin Finney exiting the car, being cuffed by a deputy and placed in a squad car.

Brown then exits the car but raises his arms several times, shouts at deputies and sways back and forth.

After two minutes, Brown swings his arms and is shot multiple times.

State authorities are investigating.

Brown and the deputies are white.
