Chicago police release video showing 13-year-old boy shot dead by officer

Bodycam video footage has been released in Chicago showing the moment a police officer fatally shot a 13-year-old boy.

The video, which was filmed last month, shows an officer shouting “stop” before firing at Adam Toledo, who appears to be holding his hands up in the air.

Chicago’s mayor has called for calm, at a time when tensions over police violence and racial injustice are already running high across the United States.
