(Newser) – The New York Police Department released raw video last night showing yesterday's fatal confrontation with Jeffrey Johnson, reports DNA Info. (Warning: It's rough to watch.)

Sky News reports that ballistics evidence suggests Johnson didn't actually fire at police, though he clearly aimed his gun at officers. (Read more Jeffrey Johnson stories.)
