LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Stun gun video released by the Kentucky State Police shows what happened during a controversial incident involving two Shelbyville police officers.

In November, they shot and killed 18-year-old Trey Williams at his grandmother’s home on Clifton Court. Police suspected Williams of breaking into cars with a lead pipe and then into the home where they found him hiding in a bathroom.

Police described Williams as deranged. In the video, Williams was heard chanting. When officers used their stun guns, Williams stood up and allegedly attacked them. He was then shot and killed by Officer Suzanne Marcum. The other officer, Frank Willoughby was injured to the point that he could no longer defend himself, according to police.

The attorney representing the Williams family, Frank Mascagni, called the video disturbing and said that Williams never attacked officers, but was instead running for safety.

Mascagni said he will continue to review the video and plans to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
