Buffalo, N.Y. — New York Attorney General Letitia James released body camera video showing the incident in which a man was fatally shot by a trooper in Downtown Buffalo. 38-year-old James Huber of North East, Pennsylvania was shot and killed by New York State police trooper Anthony Nigro in the area of East Eagle and Washington Streets on February 12. According to New York State Police, at 10:38 a.m., on February 12, troopers were contacted about an erratic driver on the New York State Thruway (I-90). State police say the vehicle was spotted traveling at an excess of 100 mph in the Town of Brant. Eventually, according to police, Huber drove into the City of Buffalo and troopers stopped their pursuit.

State Police then found him pulled over on East Eagle Street near Washington Street talking to bystanders. The body cam video shows Nigro getting out of his patrol car, drawing his gun and ordering Huber to get out. Huber, who remained seated in the vehicle, was seen turning his face away from Nigro, who yells, “Get out! Get out!” Huber replies, “Go away,” and refuses to get out as he reaches for something inside the vehicle. Trooper Nigro continues to tell Huber to get out and pulls on him, but Huber refuses. It appears Huber’s car door is locked. Huber then goes in reverse, and Trooper Nigro fires and falls to the ground. You can then hear Huber crash on a parking ramp. Trooper Nigro gets back up, runs to the scene and reports shots fired.

  1. Cop should go to Jail for shooting someone for running away. He knew his
    life was not in danger but pulled the trigger anyway. We see plenty
    examples of justified cop shootings. This was not one of them.

  2. White men think they are privileged and don't have to obey the police….this cop was cool and smooth , all business…
    One less perp on the streets …thank the Blue

  3. Good Shot Trooper!

    Your calm professionalism
    was an example to other
    LEOS in making quick, calculated decisions.

    Your actions helped him crash after he almost ran over you – preventing injury or death to other drivers.

    He could have started his road rage again against other drivers if you had not taken proper action – before backup arrived.

    G*d bless you and all LEOs as you keep us safe.

    Kudos from at least one appreciative citizen.

  4. I see a lot of jokes in the comments, but nobody questions why he fired. Can someone give me the specific reason he fired? Did he think the driver was reaching for a weapon? That wasn't made clear. If that were the case, I think any reasonable person would have done the same. It's just a shitty situation when no firearm is recovered.

  5. Transparency keeps people calmed. The video shows the facts. Period.
    The liability is gone and society is a bit safer now.

  6. Interesting how he shot a guy who was driving away from him, then threw himself down in the opposite direction. It almost looks like a morally justified shooting on the body camera.

  7. No one gives first aid to the injured suspect? It is not the first thing that the police should do after a shooting ?, but I think they are prosecuted if they leave the victim abandoned to their fate.
