SAN FRANCISCO (AP)  — A newly released video shows a white sheriff’s deputy in the San Francisco Bay Area shooting and killing a Black man in the middle of a busy intersection about a minute after trying to stop him on suspicion of throwing rocks at cars last month.

Graphic body camera footage showing Deputy Andrew Hall shooting 33-year-old Tyrell Wilson within seconds of asking him to drop a knife was released Wednesday. It was the same day prosecutors charged Hall with manslaughter and assault in the fatal shooting of an unarmed Filipino man more than two years ago.
