An unarmed black who was man shot dead had been walking toward police with his trousers around his ankles just moments before he was killed.

Danny Ray Thomas was fatally wounded last Thursday when an officer from the Harris County Sheriff's Office shot him during an incident in Houston, Texas.

Mr Thomas, whose children were allegedly killed by their own mother in 2016, had a history of depression according to his family.

But now a video released of the events shows that Mr Thomas was involved in a scuffle with a road user - with his pants down - before he is confronted by police.

The clip comes from the dashboard footage of the police officer who fired the shot, Deputy Cameron Brewer - who spotted the 34-year-old's altercation with another man.
