Loveland, Colorado — Loveland Police released the body camera footage and the recording of the 911 call that led to a police officer shooting a 19-year-old armed with knife after the teen began to move quickly toward him. Nearly two weeks after the shooting, the 19-year-old man, Alex Domina, remains in the hospital. Domina’s guardian had called the police, asking for help to calm Domina down during a mental health crisis. The body camera footage shows an officer, Eddie Luzon, approach the yard at the side of the house calmly.
From the other side of the yard, he asked Domina to talk to him, and several times asked him to put down a kitchen knife he was holding. When Alex begins to walk toward the officer, the officer is heard saying “Stay over there. Do not come near me!”. The 19 year old is then seen continuing toward the officer before four shots were fired and the teenager falls to the ground. Luzon is on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation. According to the family’s attorney, Alex has now undergone five surgeries and is in critical condition.
