Police video of a Jan. 22 fatal shooting in Millville shows the deceased man refusing to obey orders to halt and apparently holding an unidentified object in his hands that he points at police.

Edward Gandy is seen standing in the empty parking lot of a business on the northwest corner

Audio indicates at least two shots fired, but the firing is not visible on the video. Gandy appears to be shot in the chest and quickly falls to the street, rolling over.

At least two other officers in uniform are on scene as the shooting happens.

The ambulance is on scene quickly and emergency medical technicians go to Gandy immediately.

The mother of Edward Gandy, said that her son recently was released from a mental health crisis center and had been “suicidal” since a change in his prescription medication.
