MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee police have released body camera footage from a shooting in May at a Walgreens on the city's north side.

Police were called after a man shot a woman to death in the parking lot outside the store's entrance.

The video clips released are very brief

Fifty-one-year-old Willie Jones is accused of shooting and killing his ex-girlfriend, Cathy King, who worked as a pharmacy tech at Walgreens.

When police arrived, they found Jones standing over King's body, holding a handgun.

You can hear a police officer repeatedly telling Jones to drop his gun. Police say Jones kept telling the officers to shoot him.

Jones also shot at the officers once, missing them, but hitting a squad car.

A body camera worn by another officer further away caught the two police officers firing twice at Jones.

Jones survived the shooting.

He's charged with first degree intentional homicide.

Police are still conducting an internal affairs investigation into the shooting.
