Gunfire heard from Cambrils shoot-out

One police officer fires warning shots at the suspect. The man does not back down and continues to walk around the police car.

More shots are fired. The man falls – but then gets back up and walks in the direction of the police car.

A third man yells at the suspect “Abajo” – meaning “Go down”.

It is 20 more seconds until the police officer shoots another round and the man in the orange shirt falls to the floor on one knee, then collapses, face down, in the middle of the road.

Sky News has edited the video so as to not show the moment of death.

Fitzroy Davis, from Wolverhampton, saw the whole incident.

He said: “We were sitting down in a bar and having something to eat and four girls ran in with fear on their faces and then next thing we see is people running up the street and one of the guys stood up and said ‘run’.

“So everybody was running and I got my phone out and recorded what was going on.”

Mr Davis, a judo coach in Spain who was with his students, described how “a guy came running up with silver stuff on him and something in his hand”.

“And somebody shouted ‘police!’ – and within 30 seconds police came,” he said.

“Next thing you know they draw their guns and they were shouting at the guy and shots were fired.

“He then fell down and, within two seconds, he stood back up. He then stepped over the fence, charged the police again, the police fired some more shots and then he fell down again.”
