WARNING: Video contains graphic images not suitable for all viewers. Discretion is advised.
Chicago's police accountability office on Thursday released to the public body-camera video footage showing a police officer shooting and killing a 13-year-old boy in an alley more than two weeks ago.
The body-camera video from the officer showed him yelling "stop" to Adam Toledo before he caught up to him and ordered him to show him his hands. Toledo appeared to raise his hands right before the officer fired one shot and then immediately ran to the boy as he fell to the ground.
The Chicago Police Department said immediately following the incident that Toledo had a gun in his hand. It is unclear in the video whether he did at the time of the shooting.
Toledo's family attorney, Adeena Weiss Ortiz stated Thursday that the 13-year-old did not have a gun in his hand at the time he was shot. "Those videos speak for themselves. Adam, during his last second of life, did not have a gun in his hand,” she said.
