Thanks for sharing the video...

The officers in the OP video certainly were within their rights of self-defense. I think anyone would shoot in a similar situation.

Unlike the scenario in the video you shared, the police already had their weapons drawn (justifiably). That should make the "comfort bubble" a little smaller, but the fellow in the video was closing ground and made it to ~10ft (an estimation) - well inside the bubble. It was also clear that he had no intention to stop or retreat.
