The 2016 shooting happened in a hotel where police were responding to a report of someone pointing a gun out a window.
Philip Brailsford was one of the responding officers, and in this video you see and hear the cops barking out commands to a man, Daniel Shaver, and woman the moment they walk out of their room. Brailsford fired his AR-15 five times, shooting and killing the 26-year-old.
Brailsford, who is no longer on the force, was on trial for 2nd degree murder and reckless manslaughter -- until the jury returned not guilty verdicts Thursday on both counts.
Mark Geragos represented Shaver's family and described the shooting as "an execution, pure and simple.
Brailsford testified he opened fire because it appeared Shaver was reaching for a weapon.
