Just days ago, Los Angeles Police fatally shot 18-year-old Carnell Snell after he and another passenger allegedly ditched a stolen car. In response to Snell's death, many protests kicked off against police brutality in Los Angeles. Now, the LAPD has released surveillance video that seems to show Snell ducking and running around a parking lot while holding a gun.
In the video, a man in a blue hoodie and gray sweatpants runs onto the scene before pulling what appears to be a gun from his waistband and ducking behind an SUV. Then, only seconds later, the man runs around the corner of a nearby strip mall, which is off camera, with police officers running behind him.
According to BuzzFeed News, the video shows Snell just after he leapt from a car, which police were pursuing because they reportedly believed it was stolen.
Once off camera around the corner, police reportedly chased Snell for a couple hundred yards. Then, according to police, Snell stopped in a driveway and turned around while holding the semiautomatic firearm before officers fired six shots, two of which were fatal.
The police officers involved in the shooting were not equipped with body cameras at the time, BuzzFeed News reports. Their division reportedly hadn't been equipped with them yet.
