A California man was shot and killed on Sunday after calling police “pigs” and running towards them with a steel bar.
Bodycam footage reportedly shows Adam Barcenas, 60, charging towards officers in Oxnard, Calif., with a five-foot steel bar at 6am on Sunday.
Oxnard police were carrying out a DUI investigation when Barcenas – who were not involved – confronted them.
Barcenas can be heard calling the officers ‘pigs’ and shouting ‘I hate you’ in the video.

The officers asked Barcenas to stand down, but he advanced towards an officer who then fired four shots.
“Barcenas ignored the officers’ orders and continued to advance toward the officers in an aggressive and threatening manner,” the Oxnard Police Department said in a news release.
Three of the shots hit Barcenas. Another officer fired his taser, which did not penetrate Barcena’s skin.
