Following public outcry over the fatal shooting of a 17-year-old suspect during a traffic stop, Police Chief Mike Davis of the North Little Rock Police Department has released the dash camera video.
During a press conference, Davis condemned the “great deal of misinformation” that was spreading on social media claiming that the suspect wasn’t armed or that he never fired on officers.
The video, which is broken down by former officer and YouTuber ‘Donut Operator,’ clearly shows that the suspect was not only armed, but fired on officers before they fatally shot him.
The video also clearly shows the officers were polite and professional during the entire incident leading up to the suspect pulling his firearm.
The vehicle the suspect was in was pulled over for speeding at approximately 1:00 a.m. on Sunday.
