ARLINGTON (1080 KRLD) - O'Shae Terry was killed in the shooting last Saturday. Arlington police's dash cam video shows an officer talking to Terry and his passenger, before another officer arrives. That officer had been called as backup after the first officer reportedly smelled marijuana.

As the officers start searching, Terry appears to roll up his windows and start the car. The second officer tells him to stop and grabs onto the window.

As the car takes off with the officer still holding on, he shoots into the car several times. Terry is hit and dies of his injuries.

Attorneys for his family say the video shows the shooting was unjustified and excessive.

The Arlington officer is on administrative leave, as per standard policy.
