Around 3:30 in the morning last Thursday, Francisco Valera heard gunshots and ran towards the window of his apartment on Avenue A near 7th Street. "Those shots were right underneath my window. I felt it pretty hard," Valera told Gothamist. The photographer and longtime East Village resident recorded what he saw next.

The video, first published by EV Grieve, shows the NYPD responding to the fatal shooting that left two men dead. According to the NYPD, two officers patrolling Tompkins Square Park heard gunshots near the intersection. In a briefing last week, NYPD Chief of Department Terence Monahan said the officers ran toward the sounds and saw one man shooting another.

"The two officers engaged the armed suspect and gave numerous commands for him to get on the ground. It was then, the officers fired three times at the man, striking him."

Valera said his video picks up a minute or two after those shots were fired. Warning: the video is graphic.

One man exits a police car parked next to the body of a man in the street. Two officers are crouched near the body. "Officer, please put him in a car, put him in the fucking car—he don't have a second!" the pacing man says. "All yall gotta do is take him to the hospital!"

Another officer can be heard yelling "Holster up!" Two officers stand behind a trash can and point their guns at the body of a man face-down in the 7th Street crosswalk. "He's got a gun, he's got a gun. Let's wait for ESU," one officer can be heard saying, referring to the NYPD's Emergency Service Unit.

Valera said that an ambulance arrived several minutes after the video ends.

Police said that the officers shot 37-year-old Earl Facey. According to the NYPD's account, Facey had shot 41-year-old Richard Reid, after a verbal argument the two men had in Hayaty Hookah Bar spilled out onto the street. Both men were found to have .22 caliber handguns on them, police said.

The owner of the hookah bar, Samir El Mestassi, told the Times that officers shouted at Facey to stop moving but that Facey "pretended like it didn’t happen. He just kept on walking...Maybe he thought if he turned his back on them that they wouldn’t shoot him."

No officers suffered any injuries in the shooting.

"You have to look at each of these cases on a case by case basis, and to see if the actions and reactions are objectively reasonable to a police officer," said Keith Ross, a former NYPD officer who is now a professor at CUNY's John Jay College of Criminal Justice.

"Police officers get very minimal medical training, with the exception of ESU. ESU are trained paramedics," Ross said, offering a possible explanation for why the officers pointing their guns at the man in the crosswalk weren't approaching him.

"To pick up a shooting victim, and to 'bring them to a hospital'—and I assume they mean to bring them to the hospital in the [patrol car]—what happens if you move this guy and their neck is broken?" Ross said. "There a million questions that could be asked, there are a million what-if scenarios."

The NYPD said the officers involved had their body cameras turned on, but have not said when they will release the footage.
