The Miami Herald cites North Miami Assistant Police Chief Neal Cuevas as saying officers responded to the scene Monday, where they began giving orders to 47-year-old Charles Kinsey and his 23-year-old patient to lie on the ground.
Kinsey lies down and tries to get his patient to comply. Cuevas says an officer then fired three times, striking Kinsey in the leg. No weapon was found.
Kinsey's attorney, Hilton Napoleon, provided a video to the Herald on Wednesday taken moments before the shooting. It was not immediately clear who shot the provided video, which appears to include two separate clips.
It shows Kinsey lying in the middle of the street with his hands up, asking the officers not to shoot him, while the autistic man sits next to him, holding what appears to be a toy truck, yelling at him to "shut up."
Kinsey is black. Police haven't released the name or race of the officer who shot him.
