NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- The NYPD released surveillance footage taken by a body camera in an officer-involved shooting that occurred on Sept. 17 on Staten Island.

The video shows the moments leading up to the incident, as well as during the incident and also includes audio recordings and radio transmissions of the incident.

Officer Vanesa Medina.30, was shot once in the hand while attempting to arrest a domestic assault suspect in the Stapleton neighborhood.

The suspect, a 39-year-old man, was tasered in the struggle, and officers grabbed his arm to try to prevent him from firing a gun.
