Security camera footage shows Kansas City police confronting Malcolm Johnson in the BP gas station at 63rd Street and Prospect Avenue in March.

Kansas City pastors say new videos of the police shooting of Malcolm Johnson refute the official narrative.

In an exclusive interview with Up To Date, Kansas City faith leaders express their disbelief over the details of the March police shooting of 31-year-old Malcolm Johnson in a Kansas City gas station. The pastors say new videos that have surfaced don’t meet the description of the event produced by the Missouri Highway Patrol which is reviewing the shooting and explain why they believe this police shooting was an "execution."
