VIDEO Released of 2013 Chicago Cop Shooting

By

A video released Thursday showed the final moments before a Chicago police officer gunned down a 17-year-old black teen suspected in a 2013 carjacking, but it’s unclear if the teen turned toward the officers or was holding anything before he was fatally shot. A federal judge lifted the protected order on the surveillance footage showing the fatal shooting of Cedrick Chatman after the city dropped its effort to keep it sealed. The police department has come under scrutiny over alleged misconduct in the wake of a separate fatal police shooting of a black teen and subsequent release of that footage in November. Officer Kevin Fry had said he opened fire on the teen after fearing for his and his partner’s lives when Chatman allegedly made “a slight turn” holding an object. It’s unclear whether Chatman turned toward police, but the object turned out to be an iPhone box.
