Final moments of Boston ‘jihadi’ caught on camera

Surveillance video released on Monday of the fatal shooting of a Boston man suspected of a terror plot to behead police officers shows six plainclothes officers surrounding him before opening fire.

The blurry video shows alleged jihadist Usaama Rahim, 26, walking through a CVS parking lot on his way to a bus stop in the city’s Roslindale neighborhood during the early morning hours of June 2.

Officers approach Rahim but back up as Rahim walks toward them in the parking lot. The officers draw their firearms, and Rahim, who is mostly obscured by a light pole during the altercation, falls to the ground.
