A Phoenix police officer fatally shot a gun-wielding father who was holding his child in a dramatic encounter that was caught on body camera footage.

The officer can be heard pleading with 37-year-old Paul Bolden to put the child down before shooting him outside a hotel on Jan. 9 in video released Monday by the Phoenix Police Department.

Police responded to the scene after Bolden’s girlfriend called 911 reporting he was firing a gun while holding the child.

“[He] just took my baby, he has a gun, he’s loaded, he took the baby. He’s trying to kill him, he’s shooting, he fired,” the frantic mother told 911 dispatchers, according to audio of the call released Monday.

“He has a kid hostage right now,” one officer radios in, according to the footage. “He has a gun, he has made one gunshot already,” the officer continues.
