BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - Multiple law enforcement sources with direct knowledge of the investigation into allegations of police brutality by Buffalo Police officers said a third video of the incident is being looked at for evidence.

The first video, recorded on a cell phone by a bystander, was uploaded to YouTube and broadcast by local media.

A second video exists, recorded by a Buffalo Police street surveillance camera posted at the corner of Ontario and Philadelphia, where the April 19 incident took place.

The third video was recorded by a nearby business.

Internal Affairs is investigating six Buffalo officers, five of whom have been placed on paid administrative leave. A sixth officer, who is seen in the video punching and kicking a handcuffed John Willet, is on unpaid suspension.

Willet was being arrested for heroin and crack cocaine possession at the time.

Eyewitness News has learned through police department sources that Internal Affairs has interviewed all six officers involved.

Sources also confirm that the FBI has obtained all department documents pertaining to the arrest along with copies of all three videos.
