Police in San Diego released footage showing the moment a police officer fatally shoots a chain-wielding man walking towards him while shouting 'Trump is the Devil.' BLACK Suspect Vaughn Denham, 48, reportedly attacked another person with a machete during an argument over a dog chain.

Officer Corey Pitts had responded to the incident on August 8, 2017. When he tried to intervene, Denham ran up to his patrol car and swung a four-foot metal chain at the vehicle. San Diego's District Attorney's Office claimed that Pitts ordered Denham to drop the chain and he refused while continuing to walk toward the officer, swinging the chain.He used a Taser but that failed to stop Denham charging him. This forced Pitts to retreat for a block and a half while he continued to order Denham to drop the chain and get on the ground.

Footage shows Pitts warning Denham he would shoot if he continued to refuse to put the chain down. The New York Post reported that he could be heard muttering: 'Trump is the Devil.'For more than a minute, Pitts walked backwards and continued giving commands to Denham to drop the weapon and get on the ground or he would be shot.In the two-minute clip, Denham is seen running towards Pitts as he says: 'Drop that now, drop the chain. Get down now.

'The man is then heard saying to him: 'Shut the f**k up.
