Video Emerges of Police Killing John Crawford III

New Video Shows John Crawford Fatally Shot By Police In Walmart

The recently released video appears to show 22-year-old John Crawford III being fired upon just seconds after police encounter him. The August 5 incident triggered protests from residents and family members demanding the video be released. Crawford is Black, and the two officers involved in the fatal shooting are White.

Crawford's family asked for a federal investigation to see if race was a factor. Instead, a grand jury determined Wednesday that the two officers involved were justified in their actions. Police have said multiple times that Crawford refused commands to drop the air rifle, according to the Dayton Daily News.

The surveillance video, obtained by the Xenia Daily Gazette, appears to show Crawford shot almost immediately after police encounter him.
