Nats of video (14 seconds) both the otsego county district attorney's office and oneonta's acting police chief says this video paints a clearer picture of what happened april 6th.

"it clearly tends to offer a cleaer picture of what happened as opposed to video that was made available that occured after it."

"anyone that sees this video can see how quickly it happened.

How quickly the officer had to make the decision.

And it was clear from the video that the individual was not shot until with knife in one hand until he reached out and grabbed the child's leg and started grabbing the child."

From the beginning, you can see tyler green and an unidentified woman with a child standing in the front lawn on river street.

"nats" we did ask acting chief witzenburg on if the child seen in the video was green's.

And now this video as well as the officer's body camera footage are being analyzed by the state attorney general's office..

"i'm not going to comment on what my thoughts are on this as it is currently under investigation by the attorney general's office.

And i will refer any additional questions regarding the incident to the attorney general's office who is conducting that ongoing investigation."

I did hear from the state attorney general's office who said they cant comment on the investigation.

But did tell me these types of investigations normally take about a year, but every case is different.

Chief witzenburg says the two officers are back to work under administrative duty.
