    A graphic video posted online Sunday shows Los Angeles Police Department officers shooting a man purported to be homeless during a dramatic struggle.

    The video begins with a cluster of officers, seven in total, struggling with the man on the sidewalk.

    Two squad cars can be seen in the camera’s view and the area of town appears to be a central hub for the homeless. Tarps line the street and other people are milling around in the background of the scene.

    WATCH (WARNING: GRAPHIC):

    As the officers are struggling with the man, a woman is seen holding a stick or a rod to square up to swing it. At that point, two officers move towards her and throw her on the ground and handcuff her.

    As an officer and the man go to the ground, the officer says “give me my stick.”

    But the struggle continues and the officer can be heard saying several times, “he’s going for my gun.”

    Five shots ring out as the officers back away from the man and hold their weapons on the motionless man. It is unclear if the same officer fired all of the shots or if other officers began firing after the initial shot.

    After the shooting, men off-camera grow agitated.

    “Y’all guys killed that man,” a man behind the camera is heard saying.

    “And there’s nine motherfucking police out there,” he said. “Ain’t nobody got no fucking guns.”

    The full details of the shooting are not yet clear.

    The video was uploaded to Facebook by a man named Anthony Blackburn. The caption on the entry is “Homeless man just killed by police minutes ago downtown L.A.”

    TheDC has not confirmed whether the shooting did indeed occur on Sunday, though other traffic on social media suggests that it did. It is also not certain that the man died as a result of the shooting.

    Towards the end of the video, the officers begin to secure the scene. The officer who had been on top of the man moves towards people in the crowd, many of whom are filming.

    The man behind the camera identifies the officer, who is black, and says “that’s the one that killed him right there” before barraging him with other insults.

    The homeless man’s race cannot be determined from the video.

    Kinda feel sorry for these poor fucked up people.
    Wish the cops would handle these situations without killing them.

    Wow - I was downtown at the California Science Center with my kids wondering why there was a helicopter crazy close to the ground a couple blocks away when I suddenly heard the gunshots. Never guessed I'd ever find out what was going on then I saw this...

    Sad. Guys probably messed up in the head. Doesn't know or can't chill with beefy cops yelling and pushing him around. Instinct kicks in, fight or flight. Never a shortage of madness to view. Sad.

    They tried talking to him. They tried using their hands. They tried using their nightsticks. They tried using a taser (you can hear it before he gets shot) and they finally used their guns.

    We can argue whether or not the officer shot as the perp went for one of their guns all night long.

    What we can't argue with is that if the perp just did what the police asked him to do instead of being an asshole, he'd be alive right now... Maybe with good grounds for a lawsuit. Instead, he's dead. At least he kept it real though, right?

    This won't end well. Al Sharpton is trying to figure out right now if the cop who pulled the trigger was black.

    After a quick look this seems like the cops escalated out of control too quickly.

    Yep. People do all kinds of crazy things when they are in shock or fight/flight mode. It's why hospitals and ERs have compassionate restraints. Normal, everyday sober people cannot control how their bodies react, let alone someone with a mental disturbance.

    I guess 7 highly skilled and trained "cops" could not successfully subdue an unarmed homeless man without murdering him.

    I'm not looking to smash, or defend, the cops but it feels like bullets shouldn't have been flying.
