NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Police have released bodycam footage from officers who responded to a workplace shooting early Tuesday in Nashville. An employee at a SmileDirectClub warehouse opened fire, wounding three people before he was killed by police, reported FOX 17

Later that day, Nashville Metropolitan Police (NMPD) released video of the police shooting. The video shows Officers Dylan Ramos and Cherell Kinchloe running toward 22-year-old Antonio D. King. 

“Drop the weapon!” an officer repeatedly yells to King. 

King continues walking, but then turns around and appears to point a gun at officers. That’s when at least one officer opens fire. King was taken to a hospital where he died of his injuries. 

According to FOX 17, King was reporting for work when he began shooting at the warehouse. Police did not immediately disclose a motive. 

The incident remains under investigation.
