Two police officers in Fresno, California shot and killed Dylan Noble, a 19-year-old unarmed white man, last month during a traffic stop. Now, the body camera footage from the shooting has been released. And it's disturbing.

WARNING: Graphic content below.

The Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer said he hoped releasing the videos would answer the community's questions. Instead, it seems they have created more questions.

While the video shows Noble not responding to police commands, he was unarmed when he was shot four times. He was also lying on the ground when he was shot the third and fourth time. So, was deadly force really necessary?

The videos have brought outrage to Twitter, but the #AllLivesMatter movement seems to be fairly quiet. Actually, it is the #BlackLivesMatter movement that is speaking out for Dylan Noble.

Investigators are still trying to determine whether or not the use of deadly force was justified during the shooting last month.
