The lobby was closed but soon two officers arrived and started to talk to Matthew. As one officer took a few steps back, the video shows Matthew pull a Glock 9mm semi-automatic and shoot the cop in the chest.
A second female officer on scene quickly returned fire, shooting Matthew in the head. The suspect fell to the ground.
Paramedics arrived a short time later and attempted to provide medical assistance but Matthew died on scene. The shot cop survived and is recovering.
The Glock that Matthew possessed had no serial number and was a "ghost gun." An autopsy showed Matthew had methamphetamine in his blood.
