"Santana,at some risk to his own safety, kept recording. Kept getting closer too. He films the arrival of a second cop. He films ....
"Scott, of course, was dead on the ground. Santana went to work. The news came on and when Santana heard the initial reports he knew what he heard was not what he had seen. He sought to tell police that he had the evidence of what actually occurred but got the distinct vibe this was not something they wanted, so he wondered what to do next."

If Santana believed he was genuinely at risk for filming, why did he keep filming? And why did he get closer?
Question: Was Scott pronounced dead at the scene? Or did ambulance transport him to hosp? I just do not recall.
"Sought to tell" LE? Did he take his cellphone w video to PD station?
If he did, at PD station who gave him "distinct vibe"? What did they say?
If he did not take that concrete type step to show vid to LE, how did he get the "distinct vibe" LE did not want it?
From someone other than police?
Send the vid clip as email attachment to PD?
Email to CrimeStoppers org or equivalent?
I'm not sure what "vibe" Santana thought the cop who told him to stay there was actually meaning other than, "don't leave." Yet he did leave. If you truly are in fear for your safety wouldn't you tend to move away from the flying bullets than move toward them? Especially if you are in a foreign country? His actions haven't made a lot of sense.
