DETROIT (WJBK) -

Jurors in the trial of a Detroit police officer charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of a 7-year-old girl watched a video Tuesday of the police raid that led to the fatal shooting.

The shot that killed Aiyana Stanley-Jones in 2010 could be heard on the video, which was recorded by a crew from "The First 48," a reality TV show on A&E Networks. Officer Joseph Weekley's gun fired and struck the girl in the head while she slept on a couch.
 
Someone shouts "police!" on the video. A stun grenade used to confuse people inside the house briefly lights up the scene.
 
Weekley was the first officer through the door. His attorney said the officer accidentally fired a submachine gun when Aiyana's grandmother reached for the weapon. Prosecutors, however, said there was no struggle and that Weekley simply was negligent in how he handled the gun.
