Police confirmed the video, published to YouTube, shows the situation that played out on the 2200 block of North Fairhill Street around 4:43 p.m., involving a man armed with a handgun who was suspected of trying to break into a car.

In the video, police officers can be heard telling Jose Gonzales, 30, of Camden, to drop his gun several times. As the standoff moves toward the sidewalk, officers tell Gonzales to drop the weapon again, before shots ring out and the suspect falls to the ground.
