The shooting on April 12 was not initially widely reported but after the clip surfaced online on April 20, it quickly spread on social media.
Police said in a statement that they responded to a call of a knife-wielding man after he had destroyed several windows in the area.
When officers arrived, they warned the man to surrender his weapon but he refused to do so.
The police first fired a warning shot into the air but seconds later hit the man in the leg, who was heard crying out "Allahu Akbar".
