THOMASVILLE, Ga. (WCTV) — For the very first time, we are getting a look at events on Aug. 15, 2017. The Thomas County Sheriff’s Office has released body camera footage of a deputy-involved shooting in 2017 that left one man dead.

It captures the moments before Herbert Gilbert’s death.

Four Thomas County drug agents were wearing a body camera at the time of the incident. Each one provides a different angle inside and outside of Gilbert’s home.

First, it shows a shaken family, while agents search the home.

The video then shows a collision between Gilbert’s vehicle and an agent’s unmarked truck. Eventually, Gilbert’s car stops in a neighbor’s yard.

“From all those times they rammed him, he couldn’t go anywhere,” said Miracle McCoy, Gilbert’s sister.

The body camera footage shows shots fired and Gilbert stumbling out of his car before falling to the ground. Agents call EMS while applying pressure to his wounds.

The family says it’s difficult to understand the reason why.

“He didn’t deserve this, so the issue is getting pushed and we are not stopping until we get justice,” said McCoy.

“It’s just hard. It’s just really hard,” said Herbreyia Diggs, Gilbert’s daughter.

The sheriff’s office declined to comment on the videos. The District Attorney says he stands behind the evidence.

“It’s truly tragic, but under the laws and facts of the case, the shooting was justified,” said District Attorney Brad Shealy.
