OAKLAND — In a Bay Area first, a fatal shooting by police in East Oakland was captured on video — not by a bystander with a camcorder or a smart phone but by the officer himself, who wore a city-issued camera on his chest.

Oakland police officials will not say what the footage from Sept. 25 depicts, citing an ongoing investigation. But the fact that the shooting was captured at all illustrates a profound change in law enforcement, with officers increasingly strapping on cameras along with their guns, radios and handcuffs.
