A short time later, Nava's truck is seen to have stopped and the officers get out of their car and continue firing.

Officers discovered that what they thought was a handgun was in fact an air pistol.

Pedersen fired about 80% of the 76 shots in two-and-a-half minutes. Confirming his dismissal, Anaheim police chief Jorge Cisneros said: "His overall performance fell far short of the standards the community and the police department expects."

The issue of the use of deadly force by police has inflamed tensions in communities across the US.

Anaheim mayor Harry Sidhu said the decision to release the video footage of this incident to the public was intended to be a transparent sharing of information about public safety.

He and the police chief have met Mr Nava's family. Police say his relatives had become alarmed at his behaviour in the days leading up to the shooting.

But Mayor Sidhu said: "We failed what we expect of ourselves and what the community demands of us."
