Oversight agency releases video of fatal Chicago police shooting in Southwest Side park
By Jeremy Gorner and Annie Sweeney, Chicago Tribune |Oct 01, 2020:
COPA released video Thursday showing a man being fatally shot by police Sept. 5 after he was hit with a Taser and lunged at a sergeant with a butcher knife.
Chicago’s investigative police oversight agency released video Thursday showing a man being fatally shot by police Sept. 5 after he was hit with a Taser and lunged at a sergeant with a butcher knife.
The Civilian Office of Police Accountability released several body camera videos and 911 recordings related to the shooting in Vittum Park in the Southwest Side’s Garfield Ridge community as part of the city’s video release policy, which requires that video and other evidence be released to the public within 60 days of shootings involving officers.
Chicago Lawn District officers were called to the area about 1:40 a.m. Sept. 5 for a call of a person stabbed. The victim gave police a description of the suspect, Chicago police and COPA said immediately after the shooting.
At least two officers and a sergeant approached the suspect shortly afterward in the park, located off 49th Street and Lavergne Avenue, the officials said. The officers and the sergeant walked toward the suspect, Shaon Warner, according to body camera video.
“Hey, get your hands up,” one officer can be heard to say on the video. “My man, put your hands up.”
“Let’s see your hands,” the sergeant also demanded. “Hands up now.”
