CASPER, Wyo. — On Friday, the Casper Police Department released body camera footage related to a Sept. 2 officer-involved shooting near Lake McKenzie Dog Park that led to the death of a suspect.

Corey Garriott was fishing at the lake in the early morning hours on Sept. 2 when officers on a routine patrol approached him due to the park being closed, according to Casper PD. During the interaction, Garriott was discovered to have an active warrant.

Garriott attempted to flee from the officers during the incident and produced and fired a weapon before officers fired, according to Casper PD. Officers Ryan Brownell and Megan Welge both fired their weapons during the incident.
