A newspaper on Friday posted video of a Box Elder County sheriff's deputy pointing his gun at a car as it slowly drives toward him seconds before the deputy shoots and kills the driver.
The Oct. 26 shooting itself is out of view of the dashboard camera, though the audio recording captured three pops from deputy Austin Bowcutt's pistol. A minute later, video posted by The Tremonton Leader shows Bowcutt pulling Troy Clark Burkinshaw, 52, out of Burkinshaw's Volkswagen Jetta and trying to help him along a road outside of Corinne. Burkinshaw died at the scene.
The Box Elder County Attorney Stephen Hadfield on Friday said Bowcutt was legally justified in shooting Burkinshaw.
