An Arizona police officer fatally shot a man in a wheelchair Monday night in Tucson as the disabled man rolled away from him.

Officer Ryan Remington fired nine shots at Richard Lee Richards, a 61-year-old white man, outside a Lowe’s, according to body-camera footage shared Tuesday by Tucson police.

That footage shows Richards moving to enter the Lowe’s as Remington says, “Do not go into the store, sir.” Seconds later, Remington unloads the bullets into Richards’ back and then walks to handcuff Richards, who falls out of his motorized wheelchair.

Richards was entering the Lowe’s after leaving a nearby Walmart, where an employee saw him steal a toolbox. When the employee asked Richards for a receipt, Richards pulled a knife and said, “Here’s your receipt,” according to Tucson police chief Chris Magnus.

Remington was working a special assignment as a security guard at the Walmart, and the Walmart employee alerted him to Richards’ actions as Richards left the store.
