FLAGLER COUNTY, Fla. – Local 6 has obtained the body camera video from when deputies in Flagler County opened fire on an unarmed man.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement released the video on Friday of when 24-year-old Corey Tanner was shot and killed in August 2014 while trying to serve an attempted murder warrant.

Tanner had a long criminal history and was going to be charged after a shooting in Bunnell in July, but Tanner's family said he didn't have a weapon that day and shouldn't have been killed.

In the video, deputies are seen ordering Tanner out of a home and demanding him to surrender dozens of times. When deputies notice the children are inside, they lower their voices and get them to safety.

One deputy's camera shows a conversation the deputy had with Tanner's brother, who pleads with officers to let Tanner's mother talk him out. He tells officers his brother isn't armed.

The video then skips when officers shot Tanner five times after they say he charged them with something dark in his hand, which turned out to be a bottle of cologne.

The state attorney's office has ruled the shooting that killed Tanner is justified, but according to the Daytona Beach News-Journal, Tanner's mother is not convinced and has met with a lawyer.
