Following days of protests, police in San Diego have released video footage of the fatal shooting of an unarmed black man, saying the decision was made to counter "misinformation" being circulated about the incident.
Alfred Olango is shown being confronted by two police officers before one shoots him dead on Tuesday in a auto park in El Cajon.
Speaking at an afternoon news conference, Davis said the department rushed to release the videos - one surveillance tape from a taco shop, the other from a witness cellphone at almost the same position - in part to stem the violence. On Tuesday, Sept. 27, 2016, an El Cajon police officer shot and killed Alfred Olango, a Ugandan refugee who lived in the.
In a statement, police officials said two officers had responded to reports of a man walking in traffic.
NAACP president Andre Branch joined El Cajon police and public officials Friday at a news conference on the release of the videos of Tuesday's shooting of Alfred Olango. In addition to the videos, police showed the 4-inch electronic cigarette device Olango had in his hands when he was shot.
Olango's sister said she rang the police before the shooting, warning them that her brother was "mentally perturbed" and needed help. Pamela Benge, Olango's mother, said during a Thursday afternoon press conference that her son wasn't mentally ill as initially reported, but that he was grieving for his best friend who had died.
The surveillance video showed Officer Richard Gonsalves with his weapon drawn approaching Alfred Olango, who moves side to side and backs up toward a white pickup truck.

Vontaze Burfict active for Bengals' game vs Dolphins
LB Vontaze Burfict returns after missing first three games serving National Football League suspension for numerous illegal hits. The Dolphins had a brutal schedule to start the year with road games in Seattle, New England and Cincinnati.
The videos were released after three nights of unruly and, at times, violent protests in El Cajon, and on the eve of a demonstration organised by clergy and supporters of Mr Olango's family, who had pressured authorities to show the footage of the fatal encounter.
El Cajon police Chief Jeff Davis says authorities decided to make the video public after protests over the shooting became increasingly violent.
"We don't want war, we want to be heard", one of the leaders said to fellow demonstrators. The group blocked intersections as they marched through the streets, and also attempted to walk onto an interstate freeway, but were blocked by police.
"Full disclosure to the public builds trust, and it demonstrates respect", Branch said.
Police say Olango was fatally shot after he quickly drew an object from his pocket and pointed it at an officer in a "shooting stance".
The videos show the officer nearly immediately fired when the man suddenly raised both hands in what has been described as a shooting stance.
