PASCO, Wash. -

New information was released Wednesday about an officer involved shooting in Pasco that left a man dead. The Franklin County Prosecutor's office released hundreds of pages of documents, videos, and recorded witness accounts.

According to the documents released by the Special Investigation Unit, the first officer to get there was Adrian Alaniz. As officer Flanagan pulled up, Officer Alaniz had already shot  Zambrano-Montes with his tazer, both probes sticking out of his body.  Zambrano-Montes then ripped the barbs out of his body. Seconds later,  Zambrano-Montes threw two rocks at officer Alaniz who narrowly dodged them. The officers soon after fired several shots at Zambrano-Montez, killing him.

The new video shows Zambrano-Montes hurling rocks at police, who return by shooting. There are also new witness accounts, including one by Miguel Estrada, who says he was leaving nearby Fiesta Foods when he saw  Zambrano-Montes throwing rocks and yelling at police officers. That's when he quickly got his 9-year-old son out of danger and into his car. He says when he turned around, officers were using a stun gun on  Zambrano-Montes.  It's then, Estrada says, that  Zambrano-Montes antagonized police.

"And the kid says, 'If you're going to shoot me, shoot me,'" Estrada said.  He then went on to recount, "All the shots were in his back, it's like c'mon, for 35 years I've never seen this happen. I saw it in movies, but never real life, like give the guy a chance."
