Vernon Hills Police have released the video of an officer shooting a man in the lobby of the police station earlier this month.

It happened April 3 when the victim, 53 year old Howard Lazarus, walked into the station and showed a fake, but realistic-looking, handgun.

The officer fired twice and hit Lazarus in the abdomen.

He was treated at the hospital and later released.

Police say Lazarus had a note in his pocket that said he was dying from cancer and couldn't do the deed himself.
