Cops Shoot and Kill Unarmed, Nonviolent Teen on Video — No Charges

Fresno, CA — In a devastating blow to justice, Fresno police Chief Jerry Dyer said earlier this month that the shooting of unarmed 19-year-old Dylan Noble was in accordance with department policy, but that the proper tactics were not used in the 14 seconds before the fourth and final shot was fired.

Neither of the Fresno officers, Raymond Camacho or Robert Chavez, will face any charges for the killing of Dylan Noble — nor will they even lose their jobs. They will simply attend extra training in an effort to prevent them from killing unarmed teenagers in the future.

According to the Fresnobee, Dyer said officers had no ill will or intent when they pulled Noble over. However, Dyer implied that some additional disciplinary action was taken against one or both officers. He said that state law – he cited Penal Code 832.7 – prohibits him from sharing “the specific details of corrective action taken against these officers.”

Fresnobee notes that the chief said both Camacho and Chavez remain with the department and will get the additional training that all officers will likely receive, which will include:

  • approaching wounded suspects and alternatives to lethal force as the threat to officers and others diminishes;
  • reviewing the use of police dogs on potentially armed suspects;
  • equipping long guns with slings so officers can more easily transition to less lethal alternatives.

In June, Noble was pulled over after police say they were following up on reports of a man carrying a rifle. Noble was not this man as no weapons were found in his vehicle nor on his person.

The disturbing body cam footage was made public in July which showed the two officers execute the unarmed teen. 

The video shows cops shoot Noble for the sole reason of not being able to see both of his hands. The single hand behind his back was used to justify their summary execution.

Dylan Noble, according to those who knew him, loved everyone, wanted to make people laugh, and thoroughly enjoyed life — until Fresno Police abruptly ended everything on that fateful day of June 25.

“We lost a very unique and beautiful soul,” a friend posted following Dylan’s untimely death at the hands of police, according to the Daily Beast. “He was never a man who believed in a day without laughter … He made everyone feel like family … He’s made his mark on this earth by always making people filled with laughter and joy.”

Chief Dyer explained that the first three shots into Noble’s body were just fine and dandy. However, he did note that Chavez’s shotgun blast to the incapacitated Noble, who was bleeding out on the ground, could have been approached differently.

“I recognize that time and distance can become distorted during a stressful incident,” Dyer said. “However, it is my belief that after reviewing all of the evidence in this case, that 14 seconds provided sufficient time to the officer to consider and employ other potential alternatives which may have minimized the need for the fourth and final round to be fired.”

In spite of the chief acknowledging the brutal tactic of shooting a dying man on the ground, he still justified it.

While the body cameras confirm that Dylan Noble did not show both of his hands, the immediate escalation to deadly force was entirely unwarranted. At no time did Dylan present a weapon, point anything in the direction of the officers, or make any sudden movements to justify being filled with bullet holes.

Even if Noble was in a low spot in his life, he did not seek out the police. They stopped him. Police were supposedly looking for a man carrying a rifle, and it was their mistake that led to Noble’s death.

Dylan, who yelled “I f—ing hate my life” before he was immediately shot by police, tested positive for alcohol and had trace amounts of cocaine in his system. His parents claim that he was never suicidal and only reacted in this manner because he was upset about potentially being arrested for drunk driving.

Had officers merely attempted a taser first, Noble would be here today.

Below is a graphic example of how deadly a police officer’s fear can be.

      does that rule apply to the deaf too? How about people with mental disabilities which prevent them for understanding an officers instructions?

    • A death sentence for being intoxicated? Scary what Americans believe to be justice these days.

      Are you going to comply when a cop pulls you over and orders you to suck his dick? Or WORSE??

      You need a bullet to swallow!!! Then you can feel like the one’s you persecute.

    • Skyrider888

      Does it really mean you deserve to die? You are part of the problem because you have subjugated yourself to letting anyone put a big dong in your mouth on command.

    • Watamelone

      “if you don’t comply you die” that shit is scary as fuck. What’s scarier is that you don’t see how that is bad. America… hell the world is fucked.

  • piggypiggy

    Murderers in blue. Doesn’t matter what you do or don’t do, once they decide to shoot, you are going to die.
    There is nothing justified about this shooting or any of the dozen or so other shootings by cops in Fresno

    Dylon was asked for several minutes to do some very simple things to keep everyone safe, including himself. He chose to make the situation perceivably dangerous for everyone by mimicking gestures of concealing a weapon. Not sure I understand the last blast with the shotgun. Seems over the top and also appears to be the fatal shot but Dylon has a lot to do with why Dylon was killed.

    • Butch Taylor

      I would love to catch your punk ass out there one day/night while you are intoxicated. We’d see how fast and well you followed orders.

        Thank you for reinforcing my opinion of the unintelligent cop basher. I knew you all were stupid, but it never hurts to have another idiot like you prove it to me.

        • Butch Taylor

          I understand Ed. I bet it just makes you sick that my kind and I don’t need to shoot or kill unarmed non violent individuals each time we run across them in the streets. Thank God I’m intelligent enough to not be or need a cop for anything. Shit, the best you sorry mother fuckers can offer is to arrive after a crime and fabricate reports.

    • Watamelone

      You try staying still after being shot laying on the ground. They really expected him to put his hands over his head after 3 shots?

  • disqus_WrqCCshLSH

    The cop blasted the kid with a SHOTGUN?? And there was NO weapon found?? This is an OUTRAGE!!! I hope that the family sues the CRAP out of these guys and wins BIG BIG BIG.

  • Butch Taylor

    This is a clear example why some states want attacking a cop designated a hate crime. These low life murderous cowards are the most hated mother fuckers in the American society. Any attack on a cop should be considered self defense. This murder also makes it extremely clear America no longer has a justice system. Unarmed Americans are now routinely being murdered by a government designed domestic army of irrational blood thirsty mentally disturbed robotic losers. Defend yourself with deadly force.

  • Steve Rusk

    Cops are a protected class, they routinely get away with murder. In a feudal society this is how the king’s guard treats the serfs, cops have absolutely no respect for any of us.

  • Anon Ymous

    They really had no reason to tase him either. They could’ve backed away from him if need be. This is what happens when there’s no consequences. Those 2 should’ve been fired for being way too trigger happy!

  • Fred Rick

    When the video first popped up, I watched it 10 times to make sure I wasn’t missing anything. I’m going to have to side with the police on this one. Dylan Noble was being hostile AND aggressive with the police, and, was acting in a threatening manner. There was nothing innocent about his actions. I firmly believe he was committing suicide by cop. Of course, to the majority of the who commented, it probably wouldn’t make any difference. They could probably show a video of an armed man shooting mem woman and children to death in a restaurant somewhere, leaving the police with no other option than to take him out, and people would still be attacking the cop, saying he was shooting an “innocent, unarmed kid, not caring about the 9-10families that would get killed by the “innocent, unarmed” man. The majority of the people that attack the police every time they use lethal force, no matter how justified they would be, do so NOT because of social injustice, but because the want to get rid of police all together so they can break whatever law the want without any repercussions.

    • Skyrider888

      Please….the cowards in Blue strike again. This is the Police state of America Police sprinting forward. The Murdering of unarmed Americans continues unabated like we live in a Fascist dictatorship. More of them will die if this keeps going.

  • Hosea McAdoo

    Why not just admit it. In many departments cop have a license to kill for any reason, especially blacks, but you also!

  • doug murphy

    Don’t respond to the Troll. If he was hiding out with Anne Frank in Germany he would always have his foam FAN FINGER at his side just in case they were discovered by Nazi’s so he could quickly point to where she was hiding.

  • doug murphy

    Jesus don’t like killing..no matter what the reasons for..but I bet he really dislikes killing someone for being non compliant while unarmed using the excuse that the unarmed boy made the grown man in full body armor with a shot gun, taser, and bulletproof vest, as well as a similarly outfitted man next to him, fear for his life.

  • Ibcamn

    fucking murderers………cowards can’t handle one unarmed kid,then shoot him down like a dog….pathetic cops are pussys that like to kill people…cops earn the hatred they get from americans,they earn it all.

  • JW Mack

    If this is proper police procedure you cowards need to CHANGE THE DAMN COWARDLY PROCEDURES!

  • Mikenfaye

    They saw that he had no weapon for a long time before they shot him.After they shot him 3 times they were still yelling for him to show his hands. Then they shot him a fourth time with a shotgun while he was almost dead and on the ground. Idiots and pigs. It is a form of a high for them to kill someone on the flimziest of excuses. Shows how manly they are. Cops should be disarmed. If they can’t handle it without shooting then call in the swat team and let them do it. In the meantime the situation would be diffused hopefully.
    No excuses period for shooting the kid. Anyone with a baton could have subdued him in 30 seconds. Probably didn’t even need a baton. These are miscreants in uniform. Sickos.

  • Stephen Weiss

    Why ONLY in the USA does death by cop happen so much?

  • Ed Ballard

    So what are police supposed to do? Go up to him and find out what he’s hiding behind his back? He was told several times to show his hands. He refused to comply with police instructions. As a Navy Small Arms Marksmanship Instructor I can tell you it can take less than a quarter of a second for someone to present a weapon and pull the trigger. Now, once he was down I question the shots, though he still persistently failed to comply with instructions, even after being shot. But at this point we’re talking about failure to follow police operating procedures. These guys should probably never wear a badge again. But to call them murderers shows the complete lack of respect for the dangers these brave men and women face everyday to keep us safe. The outcome of police bashing is making all of us less safe. Be careful who you point a finger at. They may just decide to show up to your victimization after the crime is finished because they don’t wanna get in trouble for doing their jobs.

  • Blazejack Ryan Dugent

    Shooting someone who is unarmed is still fucking manslaughter they should have taken some charges for that

  • BJ

    I got to say boys and girls I would have shot him too. He had every chance to live. Do I know all the facts? No. but if I tell you to stop and get down on the ground and reach into the back of your belt and keep walking at me I am not going to wait for you to finish your draw and shoot at me. this is how I would become a dead cop.
    I shoot IPSC/IDPA on a hundredth of a second timer I have went from both hands above my head to draw and fire 2 sounds in .79 of 1 second.( I was not the fastest person at the match came in about 4th place) What does this mean? It means even though you both had guns pointed at me your reaction time would be in the 1 second + time frame and you both would get shot. So how about we give the police a little fucking break here. you try doing what they do every fucking day.


    US, UN and Human rights criticize the Philippine President for killing criminals and calls it EJK (Extra Judicial Killing) then what the FAK is this cops killing innocent kid what do they call that?
