The suspect, Brandon Green, was not struck by gunfire and no officers were injured.

Surveillance video and footage from cameras worn by officers and placed in their patrol cars were compiled into a single edited video released by police.

The incident unfolded on the afternoon of Jan. 11, when officers were doing surveillance and came across Green in the 1900 block of Raymond Avenue, according to police.

Pasadena police officials have described Green as a gang member with a history of gun possession arrests who had an outstanding warrant for a drug-related charge. He was armed with a gun at the time of the shooting.

A handgun is visible in Green's right hand as he runs from police. Shots can be heard ringing out before another clip captures him falling to the ground as officers trail him from behind.
