Milwaukee Police released body camera footage Thursday of an officer involved shooting that occurred last month.

The video shows Jamie Alexander after being shot by an officer near 35th and Clarke.

He allegedly ran from officers before pulling out a handgun from his pocket, according to a criminal complaint. The officer then shot at Alexander.

The body-camera footage starts after the shooting. Alexander reportedly threw the gun, and an officer found a gun near him after the shooting.

Alexander has been charged with felony possession of a firearm and obstructing an officer. If convicted, he could face more than 10 years in prison.
