The Bakersfield Police Department will be releasing video of the fatal shooting of 29-year-old Jason Lee Alderman from August 23, 2015.

According to Bakersfield Police Sgt. Joe Grubbs, at about 11:20 p.m.. two officers were searching for another suspect for an unrelated crime in the area of Olive Drive and Roberts Lane.

That's when the officers noticed a man breaking into the Subway at 1215 Olive Drive.

The officers approached Alderman and that's when shots were fired by officers. 

Alderman was taken to a local area hospital where he later died from his injuries.

23ABC News received a copy of the surveillance video, but the file that was given by the police department was corrupted and could not be viewed.

We're working on extracting the video from the disk that was given to us.
