Chicago Police Release Video of the Deadly Officer Involved Shooting of Teen


Chicago Police release yet another video capturing a deadly officer involved shooting. But unlike the dash-cam video of the Laquan McDonald case this video is not as clear.

The video starts with images of a teenager running from a car he had just car-jacked.

Two officers ran closely behind the teen in pursuit. The teen turned a corner and made a run for it. The second officer in pursuit shooting and killing him.

Officer Kevin Fry saying that 17-year-old Cedrick Chatman had turned and pointed a dark object at police, which turned out to be a black iPhone box.

The attorney for Chatman’s family says the video shows something quite different.

“What you’re going to come away with is, you’re gonna see a young kid running away from the police in broad daylight and he is shot and killed,” said Coffman.
