AUSTIN, Texas (FOX 7 Austin) - The Travis County District Attorney's Office has released body cam footage, photos and a 911 call, following an officer-involved shooting on March 7, 2018.
District Attorney Margaret Moore says the officers' use of force was justified and this case won't be presented before a grand jury.
It all started when Victor Ancira called police claiming he killed his dad and brother. Ancira also said "the body and murder weapon" was inside the home, then hung up the phone.
Shortly after, Austin police arrived at his home where they say Ancira was pacing back and forth wielding a pickaxe, refusing to put it down.
APD says he was also holding a patio chair in front of him to shield his body.
Moore says observing this, five officers fired their weapons fearing for their safety. Ancira was struck and fell to the ground. He died at the scene.
Ancira left what appeared to be a suicide note. It says, "I donate my body to science. signed boy USA."
As for the 911 call, earlier that morning APD eventually found Ancira's family inside unharmed.
