After police shot and killed Alfred Okwera Olango in a San Diego suburb Tuesday, they said he reached into his pocket, grabbed an object, and assumed a “shooting stance.”

On Wednesday evening, they revealed what that object was: “a vape smoking device.”

Olango, 38, was a Ugandan refugee.

The aftermath of the incident was captured in a Facebook Live video that showed a distraught woman who said she was Olango’s sister. The woman, dressed in hospital scrubs, said in the clip that she called police for help three times.
