The Florida sheriff’s office on Thursday released body camera footage showing a man, who was shot and killed by law enforcement last week, charging at officers with a knife in his hand.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Office said deputies responded to 4717 Davisson Avenue on Feb. 6 after a man initially called 911 to report his friend committed suicide inside the home. He then said that he could hear his friend screaming, but that he didn’t want to go into the house to see what was going on.

Shortly after two officers arrived at the home, a man, later identified as Decarlos Cornelius Long, 43, ran outside and attacked the officers with a knife in his hand while yelling.

Both officers, who have not been identified, fired their weapons at Long, striking him. He was taken to the hospital, where he died from his injuries.

The sheriff’s office said its policy is to make body camera footage public within 30 days of “critical incidents,” which include officers’ use of force, as a commitment to transparency.

“We believe it is important for members of our community to see the entirety of what is posted, rather than relying on brief snippets they may see elsewhere,” OCSO said in a Facebook post with the raw images.

The sheriff’s office said both deputies got very close after he was shot and kicked the “large kitchen knife to a safe distance” to allow Orange County Fire Rescue to “safely enter the scene,” according to FOX. 35 Orlando.

Authorities described the knife, which was covered in blood, as a stainless steel kitchen knife.

At the time of the shooting, Sheriff John Mina said Long left the house with the intention of harming deputies, so they “really had no choice” but to respond the way they did.

“He was extremely agitated, he was holding a very large knife and it happened in the blink of an eye,” Mina said, adding that the sheriff’s office responded to that home at least 16 times over the past year for various reasons.

The sheriff also said Long likely had a history of “mental health issues.”
