Maybrook, NY - Authorities have released police body camera footage of officers in a shootout inside the apartment of a man who wounded a New York police chief before dying of a gunshot wound.

The Orange County district attorney on Thursday released 2½ minutes of video from a camera worn by one of the officers who entered 28-year-old Anthony Bostick’s apartment in the village of Maybrook after receiving a report of a domestic dispute Tuesday morning.

Once inside the apartment the officer is heard ordering Bostick to step into view. A gunshot apparently fired by Bostick is then followed by numerous shots fired by the officers.

Authorities say Bostick died of a gunshot wound, but they haven’t said yet if it was self-inflicted or from police returning fire.
