Shock footage shows US police killing Alton Sterling

This shocking footage shows Louisiana police officers shooting a man who was selling CDs.

Officers in the Louisiana city of Baton Rouge remained tight-lipped after the incident between two police officers and Alton Sterling, the man who was fatally shot during the altercation.

The 48-second clip was filmed outside Triple S Food Mart and shows two officers tackling and wrestling a heavy-set man against a car before throwing him on the ground.

 “He’s got a gun,” one officer cries while the pair pinned Sterling to the ground.

“You f-----g move, I swear to God,” the other cop yells, before the two draw their weapons.

The terrified bystander turns the camera phone away as five shots ring out — two of which a coroner said struck Sterling in the chest and back.
