KENTWOOD, Mich. — Police in Kentwood have released dash and body camera footage following an officer-involved shooting last month.

The shooting happened on on June 29 on Stauffer Avenue around 3 p.m. Police responded to reports from neighbors that a man was carrying a gun in the neighborhood. 

The suspect, Salim Kadir-Tyler Powell, ignored repeated commands from officers to drop his weapon. Powell was shot once after he pointed a firearm at an officer.
