The recording is from the store in Brentwood. The video appears to show Cpl. Donald Taylor approaching 19-year-old Ryan Dorm from behind and striking Dorm with his gun. A flash on impact appears to be the gun firing. Police have said that Taylor lied about what happened during the Feb. 3 incident, claiming Dorm reached for his weapon.
