MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee Police have released body camera video of an officer-involved shooting on June 8. 

According to a criminal complaint, police were called to N. 84th Street on June 8 for a domestic incident. They tried to question Javon Lewis, but video shows, he ignored their orders and took off running. 

Body camera video does not show Lewis fire at the officers, but multiple gunshots can be heard and in images the Milwaukee Police Department says are of the video slowed down frame-by-frame, Lewis can be seen turning toward officers with a gun. 

The criminal complaint states one of the officers told a detective Lewis produced a gun, stopped, turned and raised it toward officers, firing multiple times.

The officer then shot Lewis, hitting him in the shoulder. 

"Neither the two officers nor citizens were injured by the shots the male subject fired. One of the bullets from the subject's gun did go through a large picture window in a nearby apartment building," said Captain Thomas Casper with the Milwaukee Police Department. 

Lewis survived the shooting and is now facing attempted homicide charges.
