HUNTINGTON PARK, Calif. (KABC) -- Huntington Park police have released new video footage in the case of a double amputee who was fatally shot after stabbing one man and threatening to throw his knife at officers.

The family of Anthony Lowe has been critical of the Jan. 26 shooting, saying that he was not a threat to officers because of his disabled condition. They are expected to file a lawsuit against the department and are calling for prosecution of the officers.

In a video previously made public, Lowe is seen hobbling on his two partially-amputated limbs with a knife in hand before he is shot by officers.

In the new video, surveillance footage from a nearby gas station shows why police were called to the scene in the first place.

Lowe is seen, out of his wheelchair and hobbling on his amputated limbs, approaching a pedestrian on the street from behind and stabbing him without warning in the torso.

It's not immediately clear if the two men knew each other or if anything sparked the attack, but the victim appeared to be walking away from Lowe and not looking at him before the stabbing.
