Police in Oklahoma have released body-cam footage depicting the fatal officer-involved shooting of a man in a local restaurant. 
Muskogee police were called to the 'I Don't Care Bar and Grill' at approximately 2pm on Monday to answer a call for the capture of 36-year-old Andrew Kana. The Ponca City resident was wanted for several outstanding warrants, according to KFOR
The footage shows officers attempting to handcuff the man on one of his hands. He had refused to pull out his other hand for the policeman. 
It was then that he pulled out his handgun, according to media release. Footage shows Sergeant Ron Yates fire his gun instantly. His bullets struck Kana in the chest.
Kana falls like a rag-doll to the ground and goes limp in the footage. He died at the scene. 
Yates was visibly shook by the shooting, at one point breaking into tears. 
'I just didn't want to ever have to shoot anybody, chief,'  he said. 
Kana had a warrant related to a charge of an alleged domestic assault by strangulation in Muskogee.
He also had warrants in Ada County, Idaho, that included charges for an assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, possession of a firearm after a felony conviction and one for domestic assault in the presence of a child. 
In Payne County, Oklahoma, he had charges for a concealed weapon and domestic assault and battery in the presence of minor children. Those cases were to go to trial in February. 
In addition to those warrants, the Muskogee Phoenix also found that Kana was convicted in Kay County for child abuse by injury, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, possession of a firearm after a previous felony conviction and robbery with a dangerous weapon.
The three officers that were involved in the bar shooting were placed on administrative leave until an internal investigation was conducted.
