WATCH VIDEO: A breakdown of the body cam footage from deputy-involved shooting

It all happened incredibly fast and in relative darkness.

Body cam footage released Monday from the deputy-involved shooting last week on Old Monticello Road offered plenty of new insight into exactly what happened and how it happened.

The body cam footage, shown from the perspective of Deputy Greg See, shows he and Sgt. Ernesto Lopez enter Antioch Primitive Baptist Church after receiving a call from its pastor. The area around the pews and altar is relatively dark, and the two deputies use their flash lights to get a better perspective of the building. 

As Lopez prepares to enter the back fellowship hall, which is completely dark from the body cam perspective, yelling suddenly is heard followed by a succession of gunshots. Below is a video recap...

In the body cam footage, Lopez walks out of the church following the shooting and calls in the incident over the radio before re-entering with a first aid kit, while See begins assessing the wounds. The two deputies then begin administering first aid 70 seconds after the final shot was fired. 

Sheriff Bill Massee said that the suspect, Fiesta Latinna Murphy, 48, is expected to be from the hospital within the next few days. Murphy will be housed at the Bibb County jail, added Massee.

Murphy was grazed by one bullet in the head, while also being shot in the backside and the thigh.
