Another Shooting Video
And amazingly, it shows Officers running toward gunfire:
- Newly released video shows Chicago police officers running toward a suspect, then ducking behind fences and crouching on porches as more than 25 shots are fired between police and a man believed to have just shot his pregnant girlfriend on the West Side in November.
"He's down, he's down, he's down," an officer yells after the exchange of gunfire with Richard Grimes, 33, in the 4500 block of West Washington Boulevard close to midnight on Nov. 27.
Other officers start shouting it as they rush toward the gangway where Grimes was shot.
The videos, much of it from body cameras, were released Friday by the Independent Police Review Authority as it continues to investigate the shooting. None of the footage shows the shooting itself, though some of it is from cameras worn by officers running to the scene, then checking on their partners.
This was a desperate individual who had just shot his pregnant girlfriend, killing the baby, and he probably would have done anything to get away. Heck, he did do anything, shooting at police, and he's currently rotting in Hell. An excellent job when it happened, and now that the video has been released, an even better job by the involved officers.
