Dallas police released doorbell camera footage Tuesday showing the moments before the former college basketball star Andre Emmett was shot and killed.

The video from Monday’s shooting shows a group of men yelling at Emmett as he steps out of his SUV. It then shows the former Texas Tech Red Raiders player bolting down the street. Another angle shows men approaching Emmett at his vehicle before he attempts to run away.

He appeared to be shot in the back as he was running away.
