ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Albuquerque police have released video footage of a man shot dead by an officer during a lengthy standoff.

The three short video clips released Tuesday show 50-year-old Armand Martin brandishing a handgun as his family rushes out of the house. In two helmet camera clips, Martin lies lifeless in his driveway next to two handguns.

Deputy Chief Erica Garcia says more than a dozen bullet casings were found near Martin.

Police say he came out of the home firing two handguns and an officer opened fire.

The shooting generated outrage and another angry protest of a police agency recently faulted by the U.S. Justice Department for it use of force.

A SWAT unit had been called to Martin's house after his wife said he threatened her and their two children with a gun.

Police identified the officer who shot Martin as 12-year veteran Daniel Hughes.
