The video was produced by the LAPD and it begins with an in-studio officer talking to the camera, and explaining what you're about to see. The live footage has two parts: From inside the police cruiser, and from the two officers' body cameras.
The cruiser video starts with the female officer talking to the driver. She asks if he's still on probation, and he says he has nine months left. She asks him to exit the car, and then she opens his door. As soon as he gets out he shoots her.
Then he spins and reaches OVER his car and shoots at her partner. But the partner returns fire immediately and takes him down. He also comes around the back of the car and fires more shots and then handcuffs the guy. Both cops call for backup.
The cruiser video starts at 0:35. The guy shoots at 1:10. The female cop's bodycam video starts at 2:33, and the shooter fires at 3:19.
