Body camera footage shows man raising handgun before St. Paul officers fire fatal shots


August 20, 2018

Body camera footage released by St. Paul police Friday shows that William "Billy" Hughes answered the door to his darkened duplex and raised a handgun before officers fatally shot him earlier this month.

Police Chief Todd Axtell said he released the video amid calls for transparency in the wake of the Aug. 5 shooting, when police were called to Hughes' apartment for a report of shots fired.
