Warning: The video is graphic and may be disturbing.

A new video released Wednesday shows a dramatic new view of what happened when a  Nashville Police officer fired his gun, killing a man in North Nashville last month. 

The video is from a surveillance camera at MLK Magnet School near 17th Ave. N and Jo Johnston Ave. It shows the end of a foot chase and the moment when Officer Andrew Delke fired his weapon at Daniel Hambrick. Hambrick fell to the ground and later died.  

In the video attached, at about the 1-minute mark, you can see what happened when Delke chased Hambrick around a corner. As they come into view, Delke fired his weapon. Hambrick collapsed. A short time later, Metro Police and medics arrived. This is the most complete view of the actual shooting that TBI investigators are looking at.  

It is not clear how many shots were fired, although the medical examiner has told News 2 that Hambrick was shot multiple times. 

Police say 25-year old Daniel Hambrick had a gun. Multiple videos show something in Hambrick’s hand, but whether it is a gun is not clear.

The video was released Wednesday by District Attorney Glenn Funk. 

The foot chase began over a stolen vehicle.  

Officer Delke is on administrative leave while the TBI investigation continues.
