KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A new piece of surveillance video has surfaced from the night a Kansas City bride became a widow, video the public has not seen until now.

An off-duty Kansas City police officer, Donald Hubbard, shot and killed 26-year-old Anthony Bruno during a fight a block away from the Marriott Muehlebach hotel, where Bruno was staying with his wife Stephanie.

Stephanie Bruno believes the newly-released footage may shed new light on what happened to her Kansas City firefighter husband the night they celebrated their wedding reception and that the footage proves her husband's death could have been avoided. 41 Action News showed both videos to retired FBI agent and former police officer Michael Tabman. Tabman has 27 years of experience in law enforcement. In his opinion, Officer Hubbard didn't use excessive force.
