The Orange County Sheriff's Department released new video Friday of a street stop for jaywalking that led to a shooting by its deputies assigned to a homeless outreach detail last fall.

(CNN)The Orange County Sheriff's Department released new video Friday of a street stop for jaywalking that led to a shooting by its deputies assigned to a homeless outreach detail last fall.

One of the two deputies involved in the street stop shot 42-year-old Kurt Reinhold after the other deputy shouted, "he's got my gun. " The deputies were assigned to the department's Homeless Outreach Team and confronted Reinhold after at least one of the officers believe he jaywalked.

The two deputies who initiated the jaywalking stop in September were assigned as "homeless liaison officers" in San Clemente.

John Taylor, an attorney for Reinhold's family, said deputies shouldn't have stopped Reinhold in the first place.

That video shows Reinhold and the deputies in front of a hotel about 220 feet north of the intersection where the stop began.

The person recording with his cell phone says "I've got to get this on video. " While they're trying to wrestle control of the man, one of the deputy's shouts "he's got my gun. " Barnes has previously said the deputy said it four times.

Surveillance video from a nearby hotel shows officers initially on top of the man but while they're wrestling, he ends up on top of a deputy.

There's no audio on that video, but it shows Reinhold's hand reaching for the deputy's gun, said Carrie Braun, a spokesperson for the sheriff's department.
