FORT WORTH (1080 KRLD) - Fort Worth Police say they will not be releasing the bodycam footage of Sunday night's deadly officer-involved shooting.

They say since it happened inside a private home, that footage is confidential. 

Officers were called to the home on Blue Ridge Dr. in the Eastern Hills neighborhood on a report of domestic violence.

When they arrived, they encountered a 46-year-old man holding a handgun.

When he refused officers' commands, one of them fatally shot him.

That officer has been on the force for two years and is on routine paid administrative leave as the investigation continues.​
