The Chandler Police Department has released the surveillance video from a fatal shooting that took place inside a Walmart two weeks ago.

Kriston Belinte-Chee, 36, was shot and killed by 25-year-old Cyle Quadlin on February 16 after the two got into an argument at the service counter that escalated into a physical fight.

Police say Quadlin told investigators he was on the losing end of the fight and "was in fear for his life" when he pulled out his gun and shot Belinte-Chee.

The surveillance appears to show Belinte-Chee instigating the confrontation at the service counter and also shows Belinte-Chee attacking Quadlin after following him to an exit.

The shooting can't be seen clearly from the surveillance footage, as it takes place at the edge of the frame from a few different angles. At one angle, you can see that Belinte-Chee started to run away, but it's hard to tell whether he'd already been shot at that point.



Belinte-Chee was hospitalized but was pronounced dead later that day. Quadlin wasn't arrested in the case, as Chandler police said the case was submitted to the Maricopa County Attorney's Office to review for possible charges.

Chee was defending his wife after Quadlin became impatient and started saying things to her in the line.  Chee's wife ignored him, but when he came up to the front that's when things got started and the white boy was being rude and saying racist stuff and Chee was only protecting his wife.

Self defence. Big guys should have kept his hands to himself and he would have been alive today.

....Right, and you know I wasn't there how?  Check yourself hun the day someone gets shot about 5-6 feet of your two year old while they are facing the gunner and victim, you can come and give me your nonsense, obviously unlike surveillance cameras I can't look and see the entire radius in a situation, and I am free to give my damn opinion anyways, and in the video it looks like Quadlin touched that gun 1:11-1:12 before Chee tried to throw him down and it was out at 1:19 in the video.  Defend him and your gun rights all you want, quite frankly I can care less for it or your opinion

There was no need to use his handgun. None. Afraid for his life inside a Walmart? Bullshit.

Memo to Arizonans. People can carry guns concealed. Don't start fights.

I think a person has a right to not get their ass kicked. Sorry bro, if you don't want to get shot, don't start fights with people you don't know.

Doesn't look like "SELF DEFENSE" to be anymore. Looks more like a set up to kill a person or threaten them with a weapon. I don't know if Chee knows he has a gun yet. But Quadlin fleeing the seen looks as if he know he was in the wrong. A reasonable person would have stayed at the scene and that's what the AZ law states....

Carlos MaiiTso Dickson-Martin

See in order for two angry people to walk close to each other like the video, they had to be heading outside to fight. But it's Quadlin who becomes the follower if they weren't head outside to fight.

Carlos MaiiTso Dickson-Martin

So here is this shot... Now Quadlin has 3 choices to avoid a fight and now Chee is actually in front of him. Yet, Quadliln decides to go with Chee outside... Oh wait isn't he suppose to play a bill, send money, or fill out an application?

Carlos MaiiTso Dickson-Martin

Looks likes Quadlin was already threaten him use the gun. If that's the case, looks like Chee had every right to use reasonable force since his life was already threatened... DAMN! He had the gun out and I think that is why Chee decide to stop at the door way where there where cameras to see he had his gun out... During the fight he didn't have time to reach in his pocket the gun was already out..

Carlos MaiiTso Dickson-Martin

The thing about the choking, he wasn't choking him. He put his hands around to throw him down, and he also had his gun ready to shot the dude anyways, so who is the bully? I think it's obvious that Quadlin asked Chee to take it outside and he got his gun ready, and know he had to get Chee to attack him first. Chee threw him down and he pointed the gun at his chest, he don't even try to aim low. Their was no choking.. just a throw down...

You can also see Quadlin gesturing to take the problem outside, and he even points to where to go. Knowing he has a gun and even takes off the hostler clip if you see what is going on at the beginning. Just watch carefully on the gestures made from Quadlin and how they casually walkout side to fight. Also look at where he places his hand, knowing he has a gun on him. Chee's doesn't know he has a gun on him. I bet the witnesses will tell it the same way... I bet also they were walking Quadlin made a racist remark for Chee to react the way he did, and I bet they are going to find out he might have be a racist... Most Natives don't react will to racism. But you can tell Quadlin knew he had the ability to shoot them guy and could, once the fight begin...

@rhetta  Bullshit, no evidence to support that and a lot to not support it.


No matter what, no one needs physical protection from words.

@XKJGX91  Listen, go on youtube and find the un-cut surveillance video of what really happened. The man that died told the shooter if he could move over a bit since he was getting close with his wife. The shooter took the guy outside and began to push, then he shot his gun. *P.s* who brings a gun to Wal-mart in the first place?* Try talking big after you watch the video.

@justice So if Chee attacked somebody who he knew had a gun that Chee is a special kind of stupid and deserves to be removed from society.

@justice  Amazing how you can say that, when his back is turned to the camera and there is no audio... Guessing much are you?

Would *YOU* have expected the beating to happen to *YOU* in Walmart?

Had the big guy kept his hands to himself, he'd be alive today.

Apparently the kind who are smart enough to know that can crime can happen anywhere like being attacked by a bigger idiot.

You ask: "What kind of an idiot needs to bring a gun inside of family store with all those children around"

Answer: Anyone whose life, or the lives of their loved ones, is *WORTH* protecting.

You know the value, or lack of value, of your life better than I ever will.


The shooter acted responsibly.

Had the big guy kept his hand to himself, he'd be alive today.

Why is that so hard to understand for so many criminal-apologists?

Again:  If Chee had kept his hands to himself; he'd be alive today.

So if Chee actually knew Quadlin had a gun and still attacked him then Chee is a special kind of stupid. But I doubt that is the case. Chee is just the big bully type and figured he could just beat up a smaller person.

Wildfire

Maybe the lesson here is: Is line placement really worth dying for?

Wildfire
Wildfire

So you're saying that Chee was just to stupid to stay in line and conduct his own business after the situation was addressed?


If Chee had kept his hands to himself; he'd be alive today.

Wildfire
Wildfire

Because Quadlin kept his hands to himself, and Chee didn't have to "take it outside": You just gave the description of self-defense.

Wildfire

And so Chee *HAD* to obey?

No he did not.

Chee could have simply conducted his business, and been alive today.

If Chee had kept his hands to himself; he'd still be alive today.

@Revenge2-16-14 @XKJGX91  Bullshit


Didn't happen that way and you have no proof of what was said.


Obviously your walmart brain is showing, maybe you should return if for a refund since it's obviously not working.

@robertg222 @justice Wouldn't you attempt to subdue and call for help when someone tells you they have a gun and will use it on you or wife?  NOT Saying thats what was said but why else would Chee actively try to pin Quadlin from behind.  That was no regular old fist fight.

justice

@Flyer9753 @justiceMaybe just because I happened to be right there with my child.   Chee tried to pin him down obviously.   High much are you?

@justice @Flyer9753  uh huh... you were there.....


So if you were there, why did you say "it LOOKS like" in your comment above?


Lie much do you?

@jeanjb @WildfireActually your profound ignorance of the subject is not my fault. Nor does your ignorance make you correct.

Read the law, and you will see that I am right.
