This story broke Friday afternoon on August 7th and more details have began to be released .

Here is what we know:

A police officer in suburban Dallas shot and killed a college football player during a struggle after the unarmed 19-year-old crashed a car through the front window of a car dealership, authorities said.

Police identified the officer as Brad Miller, a 49-year-old who has been with the department since last September and who has been working under the supervision of a training officer since his graduation from the police academy in March. That police officer has now been placed on paid administrative leave.

Before his death, Taylor sent thousands of tweets, many of which were rooted in his spirituality or musings about his future. He also commented on police prejudice, an issue that has sparked debate nationwide amid a rash of high-profile police killings of black suspects.

There has now been the release of the surveillance footage from the car dealership where the incident happened. [WATCH BELOW]
