New details have emerged about what police say happened the moments before an Albemarle County police officer shot a man in Charlottesville.
Josue Salinas-Valdez was shot in the stomach by Officer William Underwood back in May.
He spend more than a week in the hospital, and just last week had the bullet removed.
Police requested the bullet, so they could compare it to Underwood's gun.
Court records say that Salinas-Valdez punched Officer Underwood in the face three times, and stole his baton.
Records also indicate that he could not be controlled, despite being shocked with a Taser twice.
Officials say Underwood shot Salinas-Valdez while he was charging at him with the baton.
Salinas-Valdez's lawyer has not returned calls for comment.
His trial is set for February.
