A supermarket worker has issued a groveling apology for live-streaming a policeman as he lay dying of a gunshot wound.

Kashina Harper, 34, says shes had death threats since sharing the clip of Michael Langsdorf, 40, bleeding out outside the Wellston food Market in Wellston, Missouri, on Sunday.

Harper told the St Louis Post-Dispatch: I dont know why I went to Facebook. I dont know.

I regret it. I didnt know the officer was going to die.

Harper told the Post-Dispatch that she only began filming after calling for help on Langsdorfs own belt radio.

I went to his walkie-talkie.

I said, “A police is down. Somebody shot him. 6250 Page. Can you please hurry up?”

I was calling for help. I hold his hands.

Harper then stood back and filmed for two minutes as two other women comforted Langsdorf until help arrived.
