Bodycam released of DC police shooting Black man

***EDITOR'S NOTE: RESENDING VIDEO to delete the word "white" in lead after police identified the officer as Hispanic.

Police in the District of Columbia released this footage on Thursday from the bodycam of an officer who shot and killed a young Black man on Wednesday.

Slowed down, the footage shows what appears to show a gun in the hand of the man, who officers say was a suspect known to them:18-year-old Deon Kay.

Wednesday’s shooting sparked protests –another flash point in a summer of demonstrations against what activists say is an epidemic of excessive lethal force by police against Black Americans.

Police say they retrieved two guns at the scene.

Two other people, an 18-year-old and a 19-year-old, were arrested and charged with carrying a pistol without a license or permit.

An investigation into the death of Kay is underway, and the officers involved have been placed on administrative leave.
