WATCH: Cops Chase Down Double-Amputee as He Crawls Away from Them Before Executing Him

Anthony Lowe crawled away from two officers before they shot him multiple times.

Los Angeles, CA — As the country reels from the release of the graphic video of Memphis police beating Tyre Nichols to death, another video has surfaced; this time, from Los Angeles. The video shows police chasing down a double amputee as he crawled away from them before two officers opened fire and put ten rounds in the man. That man was 36-year-old Anthony Lowe.

“This is the first [Sunday] where he ain’t watching the game with us. It’s what he loves to do,” Yatoya Toy, Lowe’s oldest sister said. “He’s the life of the family. He brings happiness, joy; he loves to dance. He’s very respectable, he loves his mother. He’s the favorite uncle. The kids all love him.”

According to police, they responded to a report of a man in a wheelchair with a knife who allegedly stabbed someone, or attempted to stab someone earlier that day. When police arrived on the scene, they found Lowe in his wheelchair holding a foot-long butcher knife.

Moments later Lowe would be dead, having been shot ten times by two Huntington police officers. Cellphone video captured part of the interaction but not the shooting.

“Something is not right with this situation,” Lowe’s sister, Tatiana Jackson said. “My daughter is 4, and she adores him. It’s going to break my heart to let her know. She does not understand. She was looking for him, like, ‘Is he hiding from me?’ I can’t bring myself to tell her that he will never come back again.”

Police released a statement claiming Lowe threw the knife at them which gave them no choice but to shoot. But no officers were injured so it is unclear why police shot if he no longer had the knife.

Huntington Park Police Officers responded to a stabbing call at 3:40 p.m. on the 2400 block of Slauson Avenue, Huntington Park. Upon arrival they contacted a male adult stabbing victim who gave the description of a Male Black Adult suspect in a wheelchair and his last seen direction of travel. Assisting Huntington Park Police Officers checked the area indicated by the victim and located the suspect near the 1900 block of Slauson Avenue, Huntington Park.

When Huntington Park Officers attempted to detain the suspect, the suspect retrieved a 12” butcher knife from his person and threatened them by attempting to throw the knife at the officers. The suspect was tased at least twice by Huntington Park Officers but the deployment of the taser was ineffective. The suspect attempted to throw the butcher knife at the officers again, at which time an officer involved shooting occurred.

The suspect was struck by gunfire in the upper torso. He was treated on scene by Los Angeles County Fire Department paramedics and pronounced dead.

A butcher knife was recovered at the scene.

Police said a nearby surveillance camera captured the entire shooting but they will not be releasing it. We have to take their word for it. Huntington police said they have no plans to charge the officers and they are both on leave pending an internal investigation.

Lieutenant Hugo Reynaga told the LA Times that officers fired at Lowe “somewhere around 10 times. … We recovered 10 or 11 casings at the scene. I don’t know which of those actually hit him.”

Reynaga did not elaborate as to how or why Lowe was able to retrieve the knife to throw it more than once at the officers, nor did he mention why officers didn’t move in after Lowe threw the knife the first time.

“He was a good kid coming up — very funny, always laughing. … If you ask anyone, he was a good person, always helping others,” she said Sunday via a video call from her job as a caretaker. “With his passing, I don’t take death good, and I don’t like the way my son was hurt like that, and I want to know what happened. I want to know the truth.”

Below is that video.
