Chicago police video shows fatal shooting of boy

Another officer arrives at the scene while the officer who fired the fatal shot begins chest compressions.

"838 milliseconds between gun shown in hand and single shot", the police department said in a caption.

But Chicago's mayor and police superintendent called for it to be released.

The jury in the trial of Derek Chauvin heard his prolonged use of force broke police protocol. "It is even clearer that trust between our community and law enforcement is far from healed and remains badly broken".

In the police response report, officers listed Toledo as armed with a semiautomatic pistol that was "displayed, not used".

The clip shows the officer jumping out of his squad auto and chasing the Latino boy on foot down a dark alley as another suspect is tackled. Stop right f***ing now!

As the teen slows down, Stillman yells "Hands!"

"Show me your f--ing hands". The boy raises his hands after appearing to throw away something.

The video shows the officer radioing for backup and approaching Adam.

The first officer says he can not feel a heartbeat and starts administering CPR as the other officers say "stay awake".

At a news conference on Thursday, Toledo family lawyer Adeena Weiss Ortiz said the boy was not holding a gun in the moment he was shot.

And headlines from around the country in just the last six months remind us that 13-year-olds aren't inherently angelic.

She then heard "scuffling" and "screaming" from Daunte Wright's girlfriend before officers asked them to end the call, she said. Wright was shot by Kim Potter, a 26-year veteran of the city's police force and the president of the police union.

Police say the teen had a handgun on him that morning, and that less than a second passed from when Toledo is seen with a gun in hand and when Stillman opened fire.

The Chicago Police Department said immediately following the incident that Toledo had a gun in his hand. "He turned around", she said.

Previous police shooting videos that went public have sparked major protests, including one released in 2015 showing a white officer shooting Black teenager Laquan McDonald 16 times, killing him. Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., tweeted, "He was 13 years old and the police executed him". "I wish it came out another way, I wish he hadn't shot, but I understand why he did, '" Cuomo said.

The family and Lightfoot called on people to "express themselves peacefully" after the video's release. "Simply put, we failed Adam, and we can not afford to fail one more young person in our city".

John Catanzara told Chris Cuomo on CNN that an 'officer does not have to wait to be shot at or shot to respond and be able to defend himself'. It shows Toledo and Ruben Roman, 21, standing on a street corner in the Little Village neighborhood.

The Toledo family reviewed the footage on Tuesday and initially asked COPA not to release the footage to the public, the family's attorney said.

In the body camera video, the officer who shot Toledo is seen chasing the 13-year-old boy on foot down an alleyway, yelling for him to stop.

"It happens now that these circumstances are sitting next to each other", she said. The Toledo family issued a statement urging people to avoid violent protests.

"COPA has remained sensitive to the family's grief and is carrying out this release in accordance with the City's Video Release Policy", it said in a statement Wednesday. It is unclear in the video whether he did at the time of the shooting.

Small groups of protesters gathered at a police station and marched on Thursday night, but there were few signs of widespread demonstrations in the city.

Shortly before the video was released, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot held a press conference where she called the footage "excruciating" to watch.

The Chicago Police Department has a long history of brutality and racism that has fomented mistrust among the city's many Black and Hispanic residents. "It is not an extended video", Taliaferro added.
