Newly released police body camera footage shows a Chicago officer fatally shooting a 22-year-old man who was alleged to have a gun while running away from cops late last month.
Chicago’s Civilian Office of Police Accountability (COPA) on Wednesday released dozens of police and third-party videos, as well as 911 call audio and information related to the March 31 shooting of Anthony Alvarez.
One of the videos shows the officer ordering Alvarez to “drop the gun” twice as he chases behind him before allegedly firing five rounds. Alvarez appears to be running away from him at the time. Police video shows a firearm was found just feet away from where Alvarez fell after being shot.
