Moment when a police sniper kills a man while holding a baby hostage at gunpoint after leading the police on a high speed chase

BODYCAM footage shows the moment a police sniper killed a man while he was holding a baby hostage after a chase.

Police officers had originally been hunting for Oscar Alcantar, 30, in connection with an incident that allegedly involved a gun swing in St. George, Utah.

Officials negotiated with Alcantara for the surrender of the infant he was holding captive.

Officers tracked Alcantara to a church, but when police stopped a car he was in, a woman jumped out and told officers he had a gun and was holding her baby hostage.

Alacantara then drove off at high speed, leading police on a chase that ended in the desert of northwestern Arizona.

A standoff then ensued as Alcantara held the child at gunpoint while officers begged him to let the child go.

Body camera footage released for television network KUTV captured the ordeal as officers shouted, “Oscar, stop it! We don’t want to hurt you!”

The officers continued negotiating with Alcantara but noticed that Alcantara began to point his gun at them.

“The gun is pointed straight at us! Gun pointed at us!” says an officer on the video.

Footage then shows police snipers positioning themselves and taking aim at Alcantara.

About an hour into the horrific ordeal, a sniper intercepts the shot, killing Alcantara.

Once the shot is fired, officers can be seen running to get the child.

“I have a child, I have a child, come here baby,” is heard in the audio.

Fortunately, nothing at all was harmed to the infant.

The standoff happened in February this year, but video for the incident was recently released after KUTV filed a public record request.

The Mohave County Attorney’s Office is reviewing the video and speaking with witnesses and officers involved at the scene.
