James Boyd was reportedly gunned down in the Sandia Foothills outside Albuquerque at 7:30 p.m. last Sunday after being confronted by officers for sleeping in an unauthorized area.

Harrowing video shows the 38-year-old finally agreeing to give himself up — after a three hour stand-off — and turning around to retrieve his belongings. But then an officer fires a flash-bang device into his path, and two other officers fire multiple shots into his body and he falls to the ground.

Boyd was pronounced dead soon after.
