Flagstaff police say have released video of the fatal shooting of a suspect by an officer.

The Flagstaff Police Department say parts of the video of Wednesday's shooting of 32-year-old Donald S. Myers is being withheld because of the suspect's privacy rights and the graphic nature of the video.
But only one of the three officers involved, Cpl. Michael Lavelle, had a working body camera.
Police say the other two officers' cameras had technical issues.
Myers is accused of reaching for his holstered handgun while officers tried to arrest him and then running away.
Lavelle responded to assist.
Police say Myers to refused orders to show his hands and allegedly goaded officers to shoot him.
Lavelle shot Myers when he reached for his beltline.
