Exclusive video obtained by KING 5 shows the moments leading up to a fatal police shooting in Kitsap County in December 2011.

The video shows that the man shot and killed by officers was unarmed. Initially police said the man fired at them first.

The man's sister has filed a lawsuit against Squamish and Port Gamble police departments

The man had methamphetamine in his blood, but his family believe that doesn't justify what happened.

The Kitsap County prosecutor reviewed the case and ruled that the shooting was justified.
