Video recorded on a cellphone appears to show a Texas man raising his hands, and then two officers shoot him.

Officers went to a home in north San Antonio Friday after to investigate a call about a domestic disturbance. On Monday, county officials confirmed the man in the bystander's video was Gilbert Flores. 

The sheriff says Flores resisted arrest and that officers used non-lethal weapons to try to arrest him. The sheriff also says they are aware of the video and it is a part of the evidence they're collecting.
