Where after 12 officers with guns drawn, commanded him to step out of the vehicle, a few seconds later would open fire shooting the young man 100 time.
After the shooting officers then proceeded to detain or arrest by-standers who were filming the incident. According to video posted on YouTube officers even drew weapons at the on lookers when they tried to obtain mobile devices and phones.

Officers Pull Guns on Bystanders
John DeLeon of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) was quoted saying "this isn’t a question of police trying to secure evidence. It’s a question of police trying to destroy evidence of what they had done… There were First Amendment violations. Arguably, there were Fourth Amendment violations to the Constitution and police using excessive force."
Police officers contend that Herisse hit an officer and nearly hit four others. On video it can be seen that a motorcyclist and a car came in close contact with Herisse's vehicle. Officers argue that they felt they were in danger as well as the general public.
Regarding the aftermath of the shooting, the police say they confiscated phones and cameras but did not destroy them. Their argument is that these devices could serve evidentiary purposes.
Currently the 12 officers are on administrative leave for discharging their weapons and have not yet been interviewed.
