GARDENA, Calif. – Dash-cam footage has been released showing a police officer shooting and killing an unarmed man in Gardena, Calif.

The shooting happened in 2013, but a judge just ordered the video's release.

The officer is heard shouting "put your hands up" at three unarmed men. Two of the men keep their hands up the whole time, while a third lowers them several times and then takes off his hat.

That's when the officer shot and killed him.

A second man was also wounded. The city of Gardena settled a lawsuit over the case for $4.7 million.
