WASHINGTON: A day after the deadly shooting of 18-year-old Deon Kay (Black Man) in Washington, the police department has released the footage.
On Thursday, the department posted a bodycam video to its YouTube page, which includes the moment that Deon Kay was shot and killed.
The bodycam footage is from the officer who shot Deon Kay.
That officer yelled I got it, after the shooting when he found the gun that Deon Kay was holding.
The camera does not pan down to show the gun, but a news release from the police shows a picture of the gun in the grass.
MPD is investigating an officer-involved shooting that occurred on September, 2, in the 200 block of Orange Street, SE in which an officer shot at Deon Kay after he brandished a firearm at responding officers.
The Police Department said Deon was one of two people who ran away when approached by officers who were investigating reports of a man with a gun in the area.
During the foot pursuit, one of the suspects brandished a firearm. In response, an officer discharged their firearm one time, striking the suspect, the MPD statement said.
The other man escaped from police while Kay was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.
The department also posted a community briefing video, which gives more contact than just the bodycam footage.
