Chicago police release video of officer shooting Adam Toledo

BBC, 16 Apr 2021
Chicago police have released graphic footage of an officer shooting dead 13-year-old Adam Toldeno.

Bodycam video shows the policeman shouting "drop it" before shooting Adam Toledo once in the chest on 29 March.

The boy does not appear to be holding a weapon in the split second he is shot, but police video shows a handgun near the spot where he falls.

Small protests were held on Thursday evening around Chicago, hours after the city's mayor appealed for calm.

Shortly before the video was released, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot held a press conference where she called the footage "excruciating" to watch.
