Adam Toledo video: Footage of Chicago police shooting released | USA TODAY
Chicago police release bodycam footage of shooting on 13-year-old Adam Toledo.
The mayor appealed for calm Thursday as the city released body camera videos of last month’s fatal shooting of Adam Toledo, 13, by a Chicago police officer – an incident that appears to show Adam’s hands in the air when he was shot.
According to one officer’s bodycam video, he pulls up in a car, gets out, pushes past another man and runs down an alley shouting “stop” toward Adam, who is dressed in jeans, a sweatshirt and white baseball cap. Adam runs away from the officer, then slows down and pauses near a fence.
Adam can be seen tossing what appeared to be a gun behind the fence as he slows down, according to surveillance video shot from across a parking lot. The video shows the gun coming to rest on the backside of the fence.
