Newly-released video shows the moment shots were fired at a boxing event in North Sacramento, leaving one person dead.

The video shows how quickly the situation escalates and how fast a Sacramento police sergeant responded to gunshots, but the suspect’s family says the sergeant failed them and the real shooter is still out there.

Sacramento police said officers were called to the event on Juliesse Avenue on November 14 after reports of cars driving recklessly in the area. A couple of hours later, police say a sergeant observed a crowd running from the warehouse and one witness said a man was armed with a gun. The sergeant then heard shots fired and ran toward the warehouse, confronting an armed suspect allegedly pointing a gun toward a crowd of people inside the building.

The officer then shot the suspect, 38-year-old Augustine Bernardo Morales, who suffered life-threatening injuries and was later pronounced dead at the hospital.
