Surveillance and body camera video shows while in an elevator an officer adjusted those handcuffs.

That's when police say Troung pulled the trigger on the officer's gun while it was in the holster.

The officer was shot in the leg and will be okay.

Troung was scheduled to appear in court this morning, however, he was not in court due to a medical hold. His bail was set at $100,000 by the judge.

Troung was also banned from the resort corridor.

His next court appearance is 8:30 a.m. July 8.
