Video of police shooting released, review announced
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A video of a fatal police shooting in Tennessee appears to show a white police officer chasing a black man and opening fire as he runs away from the officer.
The video was released Wednesday as Nashville Mayor David Briley announced a “comprehensive review” of policing procedures following last month’s shooting.
Nashville officer Andrew Delke, who’s white, fatally shot a 25-year-old black man, Daniel Hambrick, on a sidewalk beside an apartment complex during a traffic stop July 26.
The video appears to show Hambrick fall to the ground after being shot and the officer move slowly closer with his weapon still drawn.
Tennessee Bureau of Investigation spokesman Josh DeVine has said authorities believe that during the traffic stop, Hambrick “reportedly emerged from the vehicle with a firearm in his hand” and the “situation escalated,” resulting in Delke firing his gun several times.
