New video has surfaced showing the assassination of Russian ambassador Andrey Karlov from a different angle.

The shooter, 22-year-old Turkish off-duty policeman Mevlüt Mert Altıntaş, can be seen fidgeting and reaching into his coat while standing behind the ambassador for over a minute and a half.

At the 1:40 mark, Altıntaş pulls a gun from his coat and starts firing.

The camera cuts away almost immediately and the crowd is seen fleeing in panic.

Though the video is not particularly graphic, the beginning of the shooting is seen and viewers may find it disturbing.
