WILMINGTON, Del. (The Huffington Post) – A graphic cell phone video purportedly shows police in Wilmington, Delaware, fatally shooting a 28-year-old disabled man in a wheelchair, whom police say was in possession of a handgun — a claim the man’s family disputes. Whether or not he had a weapon is unclear from the video.

The Wilmington Police Department said that at 3 p.m. Wednesday their officers were dispatched to a parking lot to respond to a 911 call because a man was reportedly suffering from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, and was still armed. The man was later identified by police as Jeremy McDole.

Police said that they observed McDole holding a revolver-style handgun and repeatedly ordered him to drop his weapon.

“He’s over here!” an officer shouts in the video, uploaded to YouTube this week. “Show me your hands!” After that, a single gunshot rings out.
