San Diego Police Chief Shelley Zimmerman on Thursday promised a full investigation into why Officer Neal Browder did not have his camera turned on when he shot and killed Fridoon Rawshannehad in an alley behind an adult bookstore on April 30. "We are revising our body-worn camera procedure and officers will now be trained to start recording prior to their arrival on radio calls that are likely to result in an enforcement contact," Zimmerman said in a written statement.
