Chicago Police Release Video

Reuters Share:

CHICAGO (Reuters) – Chicago police released video on Friday that showed the moments before officers killed an unarmed 18-year-old black man last week, but failed to capture the fatal shots because a policeman’s body camera was not recording, prompting allegations of a cover-up and calls for a special prosecutor.
 
In the footage released by Chicago’s Independent Police Review Authority, two officers can be seen shooting at a stolen car driven by the man, Paul O’Neal, who crashed the Jaguar into a police car and then fled into a backyard where officers gunned him down.
 
Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said in a statement the July 28 shooting “raised a lot of questions about whether departmental policies were followed,” adding that officers will be held accountable for their actions “should wrongdoing be discovered.”
 
The clips included police cuffing Mr. O’Neal as he lay with his shirt bloodied, while one officer cursed him. “They shot at us too, right?” one officer can be heard saying, referring to the occupants of the stolen Jaguar.
 
No firearms were found on Mr. O’Neal, who police shot in the back.
