Aug 7, 2019

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — A surveillance video shows a Colorado teen who was fatally shot by police last weekend running from two officers before falling and slumping to the ground. The Gazette reported Wednesday that the video also shows a third officer dropping an unknown item at the scene.

Police have said officers were chasing 19-year-old Devon Bailey, a robbery suspect, and shot him after police say he reached for a gun on Saturday.

The shooting of the black teen by white officers prompted street protests this week.

The video shows officers performing chest compressions on Bailey before a fire crew arrived 7 minutes after the shooting.

El Paso Sheriff's Office is investigating the shooting. The Gazette reports that video from the officers' body cameras has not been released.
