Disturbing new evidence has come to light in the case of an Arizona defense attorney who is accused of shooting his lover’s ex-boyfriend.

Joseph Palmisano, 48, was arrested April 18 after allegedly shooting 25-year-old Ryan Hall, the former boyfriend of the attorney’s secretary, with whom the suspect is romantically involved.

Palmisano allegedly used a .357 handgun to shoot Hall in the parking lot of a Tempe, Arizona, office complex.

Video from Hall’s cell phone camera obtained by Phoenix-based Fox affiliate KSAZ shows the moments before the shooting.

In the footage, Palmisano can be seen wearing a suit and sunglasses and brandishing the loaded weapon.

According to the station, court documents state that after Palmisano shot Hall, he said something along the lines of “Do you feel that? That’s you dying, boy.”

ABC affiliate KNXV reported that Hall grabbed the barrel of the gun and tried to duck away, but Palmisano shot him in the back. The suspect was reported by various 911 callers after he walked into this office holding the gun following the incident.
