SAN FRANCISCO — San Francisco police have released video of officers shooting a knife-wielding man who charged at them in a residential hotel.

Forty-one-year-old Ajmal Amani was shot Friday morning in a narrow corridor of the building on South of Market after threatening several people with a large kitchen knife. Acquaintances say Amani was a former Afghan interpreter for U.S. special forces who had been shot several times and struggled with post-traumatic stress disorder. Hotel and police body camera video of the shooting were released Wednesday at a police town hall meeting. 

An investigation is ongoing.
