Watch: DA Releases Videos of Fatal Shooting of Banko Brown at Walgreens
District Attorney Brooke Jenkins released video footage Monday of the fatal shooting of Banko Brown and reaffirmed her decision not to charge the security guard who killed the man last month at a Downtown San Francisco Walgreens.
The District Attorney’s Office released four videos related to the April 27 incident, including footage from a security camera that captured the deadly encounter at the drugstore.
The video appears to show the 24-year-old Brown walking with a bag in hand toward the store’s exit when security guard Michael Earl-Wayne Anthony, 33, confronts him. Anthony cuts Brown off at the door and a violent encounter ensues.
Anthony begins punching Brown and wrestling with him as well as putting him in a headlock. The two break free on the ground, and Brown picks up the bag before exiting the store and turning back to the security guard.
Anthony alleges Brown spit on him and threatened to stab him. Video shows the security guard opening fire and Brown falling to the ground.
Brown was later found to be unarmed.
