“It was a two-story dwelling. The officers entered the house with a battering ram. They actually knocked down the door and entered the house,” said Cannizzaro.
On the tape you can hear the sounds of the battering ram and screams of people, including children, in the home.
“The officers obtained a search warrant to search the premises where Wendell Allen and two others were located,” he said.
The shaky camera shows the stairs of the home, but Allen is not visible. NOPD Officer Josh Colclough was on the stairs. The DA explains what happened next.
“Wendell Allen appears from behind the partition. He appears at the top of the stairwell. Officer Colclough takes his gun and fires one shot striking Mr. Allen in the chest.”
The sound of the shot on the tape is clear. “That bullet causes death,” the DA tells us.
There is an expletive heard on the tape after the gun is fired.
