BALTIMORE (AP) — Baltimore police have released body camera footage that shows a man fatally shot by an officer pointing a gun at the policeman.

Police identified the man Thursday as 18-year-old Curtis Jamal Deal, and later identified the officer as David Kincaid, who has been with the department for five years.

Police say Deal jumped out of a car Kincaid was following Tuesday and ran. Body camera footage shows Kincaid chasing Deal before coming face-to-face with him and firing. The footage shows Deal clutching a gun and raising it toward Kincaid before the shots were fired. Deal did not fire his weapon.

Deal had been arrested three times in the past month on gun and drug charges.

Deal was black. It wasn't immediately clear what the officer's race is.
