A federal court released police video recordings Tuesday that show Gardena officers fatally shooting one unarmed man and wounding another in a 2013 incident that resulted in a recent $4.7 million legal settlement by the city.

The city -- which had refused to make the videos public -- argued during a civil rights lawsuit brought by relatives of the dead man that the recordings show he repeatedly disregarded police orders and moved his hand in a way that led officers to believe he was reaching for a weapon.

But attorneys representing the man’s family argued that the videos show that he and the other man who was shot were unarmed and that officers gave confusing orders.
