Police released video from a Salt Lake City police officer's boy camera from the fatal shooting of 20-year-old Dillon Taylor in August.

On Tuesday, Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill said the officer was justified in shooting Taylor.

Ken Wallentine, former chief law enforcement for the Utah Attorney General, spoke about body camera footage on Live at Four.

"This, frankly, is not a hard case," Wallentine said. He said the video needs to be viewed within the context of what the officer knew before arriving on the scene.
