PCSO releases video of fatal officer-involved shooting

PHOENIX -- The Pinal County Sheriff's Office released video of a fatal officer-involved shooting Wednesday that took the life of an Eloy, Ariz. man.

PCSO said it released the video below after varying accounts of the incident were reported by media.

Victor Arenas, 25, was outside his home about 4 a.m. Sunday checking on a possible intruder. That's when a man identified as Arenas yelled at Officer Richard Timmes for shining his flashlight at him. Authorities said Arenas then pointed a gun at the officer.

Timmes yelled at Arenas to put the gun down but he fired at the officer instead. Timmes returned fire, hitting Arenas. The man ran a short distance before collapsing. He was later pronounced dead at a local hospital.
