Police in Southern California released body camera footage after a 17-year-old driver was killed during a freeway traffic stop this week.

The teen’s vehicle had sped past Fullerton police Cpl. Scott Flynn, who attempted a traffic stop on an Anaheim freeway July 5, authorities say in the video. The driver then allegedly slammed into the officer’s patrol vehicle on purpose and made an abrupt U-turn facing the wrong way, Fullerton police public information officer Lt. Jon Radus said. Flynn requested backup.

The teen then exited her car and aimed what the officer perceived to be a firearm. It was later determined to be an exact replica of a Beretta 92 FS handgun.

In the footage, the teen is heard pleading for help after Flynn shoots her in the chest. Flynn and a Good Samaritan hurry to help the girl while other officers arrive to help.

She was taken to a hospital where she was pronounced dead.
