STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) – Prosecutors have released video of the fatal shooting of an Oklahoma man by his bond agent – who was acquitted in the case – that shows the man asking why he was being arrested before he’s shot.

A jury found Chasity Carey not guilty Friday of first-degree murder in the Aug. 9 death of Brandon Williams. Jurors were shown the video in court.

Carey called Williams to her Stillwater office planning to revoke his bond and arrest him.

The video shows Carey, her son and Williams talking before Carey closes a door. Williams stands and is told to put his hands behind his back, but refuses and asks “Why?” He then moves out of camera view.

Carey then takes a gun from a desk and fires once. Her son said “Mom, you just shot him,” and Carey replies “I did,” and tells her son to call police.

Carey testified that the shooting was self-defense.
