VIDEO: 'Put That Taser Down Or I'll Kill You' - Naked Man Shot In Attack On Cop

Marcus-David Peters was involved in several hit-and-runs before jumping out of car and attacking an officer.

Richmond, VA – Police released video Friday of a naked man failing in the roadway before running at a police officer and attacking him before being fatally shot (video below.)

Marcus-David Peters, 24, was fatally shot May 14, the Washington Post reported.

The incident began when a police officer observed Peters hit another vehicle with his car and then flee, according to police.

Officer Michael Nyantakyi, a 10-year-veteran, had his gun trained on Peters’ car as he approached and told Peters to stay in the car.

“Male seems to be mentally unstable as we speak,” Nyantakyi said in the video.

Peters got out of the car and ran onto the interstate filled with rush-hour traffic, the Washington Post reported. Peters then laid down on the road and rolled back and forth, swinging his limbs.

Peters then told the police officer, “I figured it out. I’m living the dream.”

Peters stood up and began to aggressively approach the police officer. He swore at the police officer and told him, “Put that Taser down or I’ll kill you.”

Officer Nyantakyi fired the Taser, which had no apparent effect.

Police Chief Alfred Durham later said that only one prong from the Taser hit Peters.

The officer ordered Peters to back up as Peters continued to approach.

Peters then launched his attack on the officer while the officer repeated commands for Peters to back up.

The police officer then fired two shots.

Officer Nyantakyi shot Peters twice in the abdomen, Chief Durham said.

Peters fell down but then got back up and walked around. He later died later at a hospital.

Office Nyantakyi was put on paid administrative leave during the investigation. The investigation will include a toxicology report on Peters.

Peters was involved in three hit-and-run collisions before the police were involved.

Friday was the first time the police department released video of shooting while an investigation was ongoing, the police said.

@Thinblueline Meth heads shoot police. Have you not seen what the majority of cop killers look on this site? Shermed out of their skulls.

I never said anything about shooting the police, I said black people do the drugs that make them violent and cause the police to shoot them. Read my post better, fucktard.

@Thinblueline And i said white meth heads shoot cops all the time. If anything, you should be more upset at that.

Direct your anger appropriately, ThickBlueBitch.

Not angry, just don’t cry like a little pussy when some drugged out black guy gets shot by the cops, or some methed out white guy, again, I am not white so I could give a fuck either way.

@Hi_estComnDenomn - "From 1980 to 2013, there were 2,269 officers killed in felonious incidents, and 2,896 offenders. The racial breakdown of offenders over the 33-year period was on par with the 10-year period: 52 percent were white, and 41 percent were black. The black population in America ranged from 11.6 percent to 13 percent between 1980 to 2013. Compared to that percentage in the population, the percentage of black offenders who killed police officers appears to be disproportionately high." It's actually worse when you consider the majority of those homicides were done by black males who make up about 6 or 7% of the population. Now we know why most law abiding folks will walk to the other side of the street or lock their car doors when they see a black male walking in their direction. Can you blame them,?

Why do you engage this troll. His/her/its entire life revolves around hanging here trying to troll people. Surely you recognise him/her/it for what he/she/it really is...
