WATCH: Fremont Police Release Video Of Officer-Involved Shooting
FREMONT, CA – Fremont police released video footage of the shooting of the third officer in which a 36-year-old Fremont man died.
Steven Moseley died after being shot nine times in the parking lot of the Hyatt Place hotel on April 1. Officer Grant Goepp, a six-year veteran of the department, fired at Moseley, as did Detective Josh Harvey, who has been with the department for 11 years, police chief Kimberly Petersen said.
The video, which appears to have been edited from several different video feeds, shows Moseley on the ground being attacked by a dog, waving a semi-automatic pistol and pointing at officers. Officers can be heard ordering Moseley to put down their guns before shooting at him. Moseley ignored her orders and pointed the gun at officers several times, Fremont Petersen said in the video released on Friday. Moseley died on the scene.
Police removed a loaded gun and 2.7 ounces of methamphetamine from Moseley’s body.
The shooting took place at 6:25 p.m. on the 3100 block on West Warren Avenue. Eleven officers handled the case, nine of whom wore body cameras. It wasn’t two undercover officers, said Petersen.
Police had gathered at the Hyatt Place Hotel to arrest Moseley on pending arrest warrants. They believed he was armed at the time.

Police believed Moseley spotted officers sitting in an unmarked car, the boss said. Moseley ran through the parking lot. The police released a dog to pursue Moseley. It attacked the man and bit his arm, causing him to fall to the ground.
Goepp saw that Moseley had a gun in his right hand. Two detectives shouted, “Gun!” Petersen said to alert other officers that Moseley was armed. Officers yelled at Moseley several times to lower his gun, Petersen said. Goepp and Harvey then both fired at Moseley.
In the video you can hear Moseley say, “Kill me, kill me, kill me, mother …” as he fought the police dog. Officers sent orders through an electronic collar so the dog Moseley could release what the dog ignored.
Moseley was hit and stopped, said Petersen. Moseley was pronounced dead at 6:34 p.m. The entire incident lasted 25 seconds, Petersen said.
An autopsy revealed that Moseley was hit five times and died from multiple gunshot wounds.
