LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – Louisville’s police chief says the agency posted online what he called “graphic” video from police body cameras taken when an African-American man was shot to death by white police officers.
Chief Steve Conrad said Monday the video raises questions. He said authorities would investigate the use of deadly force and the issue of waiting for EMS to render aid.
Officials haven’t released the name of the man, but Conrad said he was in his mid-50s.
The shooting happened about 1:30 a.m. Monday after police were called to a domestic dispute.
Conrad said two officers fired at the man when he didn’t drop a bladed object. The chief said officers Taylor Banks and Beau Gadegaard are on administrative leave pending the investigation. A third officer didn’t fire his weapon.
