A longer, unedited video of the fatal shooting of a Hebron teen by a female Border Police officer was released Thursday night, and it appears that it may contradict the official police account of the incident.

Uploaded to Youtube by Channel 10 reporter Roy Sharon on Thursday night, the 1:08 video is uncut and appears to show that the third and final shot fired at 17-year-old Mohammed Al-Salaymeh was fired after his back was turned to the officers and he was hunched over several meters away walking away from the police checkpoint.

Like with the original video, it is hard to tell exactly what is taking place. The video is shot from above and is dark and grainy and shows a few flashes coming from what is apparently the service rifle of Border Patrol officer “N”, who shot and killed Al-Salaymeh. Still, it is clear that during the final flash, Al-Salaymeh is leaving the scene and does not appear to still present a threat to the officers.

Near the beginning of the video, Al-Salaymeh can be seen walking slowly up to the post and speaking to one of the officers, before appearing to show him his ID. He then slowly walks away, before turning to face an officer behind him, and then quickly placing his right hand against his temple and then striking him hard with his right fist. The two then fall back and begin struggling with one another and tumble off to the right, before “N” emerges on the scene with her rifle.
