Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Alfred Olango stopped reporting to officers in February 2015 . Spokeswoman Virginia Kice did not know if officers tried to find him after that.Olango arrived as a refugee in 1991 and was ordered deported in 2002 after being convicted on drug charges. He was released under a U.S. Supreme Court ruling barring detention of foreign nationals after six months if deportation is unlikely.Police said the cylinder was pointed right at the officer.Olango's relatives demanded the full video be released, according to Dan Gilleon, a lawyer who says he is representing the family.Olango arrived in the U.S. years ago as a refugee from Uganda.Chuck Drago, a former Florida police chief who consults about police use of force, said that once Olango struck the shooting pose, officers would have had to react quickly if he drew an unknown object from his pocket.Police have not named the officers involved, though Wells said both were 21-year veterans and one was Officer Richard Gonsalves.
